Successful extension module cross-compile (linux->win32)


I had searched the web but not found any info on cross compiling (other
than the fact that distutils doesn't support it.)

So, since I managed to get it working, I thought I'd share my experience
in case anyone else is searching for info on it.

Some notes on the process, along with examples are available at:

Hi, i write an extension module in C at the moment. This module does some work on some own data types that consist of some values. The functions that can change the data are written in C. The question came up if this is by itself thread safe, if some two or more threads try to change these data types, are the C functions by themselves are "atomic" or can they

This is my first attempt at undertaking a C extension module. I want to wrap an existing C library so I can call the functions from Python. There are only two functions I'm interested in calling. I did mess with Pyrex a bit and Swig, to no avail, so I turned to doing it by hand. Using the example in Programming Python, I did get the easier of the two functions working--only takes a string parameter. I'm stuck now on the other function...

Hey guys. I have an extension module written in C that abstracts and simplifies a lot of what we do here. I'm observing some strange behavior and wanted to know if anyone had any advice as to how I should start tracking this down. More specific suggestions are obviously appreciated, but I really don't have a lot of information to provide so I'm not hoping for a lot. :) The module works 100% of the time if I run it non-interactively....

Hi, I'm having some trouble linking one extension module to another because the linker expects a "lib" prefix and my python modules cannot have this prefix. I found two ways of doing it on a linux box (either symlink or create a dummy .so that links to extension module) but I can get neither of them work on OSX (let alone windows).

Dear Python experts, I have a strange problem - or more precisely, I'm not even sure if it's a problem or not. I'm developing a Python extension module in C which creates a new type with methods, mapping support and stuff like that :) Everything's working fine, but if I inherit a new class from this type in Python, I start getting strange warning messages in valgrind. Just a simple example: import mymodule

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
