I am an eclipse newbie. I have a C++ project that is compiled with bjam and has jamfiles for the same. Eclipse has a lot of support for Makefile based C++ projects I believe. How do I get Eclipse to work smoothly for the bjam based C++ project ?

Edit Project Properties -> C/C++ Build:

  • uncheck "Use default build command" and enter bjam as build command.
  • uncheck generates "Make automatically".

In the Behaviour tab you can also specify details like debug and release build and how to clean your project.
