"""
Try to detect a C++ compiler from the list of supported compilers (g++, msvc, etc)::

	def options(opt):
		opt.load('compiler_cxx')
	def configure(cnf):
		cnf.load('compiler_cxx')
	def build(bld):
		bld.program(source='main.cpp', target='app')

The compilers are associated to platforms in :py:attr:`waflib.Tools.compiler_cxx.cxx_compiler`. To register
a new C++ compiler named *cfoo* (assuming the tool ``waflib/extras/cfoo.py`` exists), use::

	from waflib.Tools.compiler_cxx import cxx_compiler
	cxx_compiler['win32'] = ['cfoo', 'msvc', 'gcc']

	def options(opt):
		opt.load('compiler_cxx')
	def configure(cnf):
		cnf.load('compiler_cxx')
	def build(bld):
		bld.program(source='main.c', target='app')

Not all compilers need to have a specific tool. For example, the clang compilers can be detected by the gcc tools when using::

	$ CXX=clang waf configure
