Success at last !
>>> import primes
[2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29]
I renamed the "mymodules" to "primes" in setup.py
*and* used the following line fromt he command line :
D:\Python Projects\c>setup.py build_ext --compiler=mingw32
building 'primes' extension
F:\MinGW\bin\gcc.exe -mno-cygwin -shared -s
o build\temp.win32-2.3\Release\primes.def -LD:\Python23\libs
ld -lpython23 -o build\lib.win32-2.3\primes.pyd
I tried the command line option first and it failed - but I noticed the
presence of errors mentioning 'mymodules' -(which I assumed was just an
output name for the module) - so I renamed.... and it succeeded. I'll
try it again with disutils.
Hmm... just have - still get the Visual Studio 6 needed
So it looks like disutils *isn't* picking up my disutils.cfg.........
Thanks for your help guys.
I look forward to trying some more interesting stuff over the weekend.
