Replacement for 'make'

'Jam' is a 'make' replacement that runs on over 50 platforms; most Jamfiles are themselves portable. Because Jam understands C/C++ dependencies, you need not declare header or object files. The built-in Jam rule "Main" handles header file dependencies and object files both automatically and on-the-fly. Before any targets are updated, Jam gathers complete dependency information for C/C++ source files. This lets Jam build as much as possible, instead of stopping on the first build error, avoid building targets if targets on which they depend fail to build, and build across parallel paths with multiple, concurrent processes.
