Compiling C99 extensions


I'm running Windows and Python 2.4 (binary). I've been trying to
compile this module with extensions that incorporate some C99
extensions (e.g. designated initialisers). I haven't had much luck with
MSVC++ Toolkit 2003, because it doesn't support C99. Is there any other
way I can get the module installed and the extension compiled without
the need to compile Python? I heard that Intel C++ has the same ABI as
VS7.1, can I use it to comple the extension separately? If so, could
someone briefly explain how, because I keep getting the error
"python24.l ib cannot be open" or similar error.
Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi, I'm busy porting a PHP-Extension written by the company I work for from Linux to Win32 (XP). Everything worked fine. I fixed the errors and warnings, copied the dll to the extensions directory, entered the dll as extension into php.ini and this is, where trouble starts. When PHP is called on apache starting up, it throws an error at me saying "Unknown(): Unable to load dynamic library '...' Module not found.

Every few months I get to working on a Python C extension (built with distutils) and discover a pointer error or the like where I'd like to be able to step into my DLL and see where the extension is going wonky. Now, the "proper" way to debug a DLL is apparently to build Python in debug mode (i.e. with the _d form dll), then build each and every extension I depend on (in debug mode), and then build each of my own extensions in debug...

The good news: Along with Python-2.4 comes really good news to Windows users. Yes, you now CAN build extension modules yourself using the SAME C++ compiler and linker Python is built with itself. Everything you need is available at no costs (except download hassle and installation time). Once your system is set up properly its just a matter of running 'python setup.py build'. No longer waiting for someone else to build binaries and a...

I need to access a MSSQL database (MS-Sql, not MySQL!)and would very much like to use mssql-0.09.tar.gz which is available from http://www.object-craft.com.au/projects/mssql/download.html Unfortunately the binary for Python-2.4 isn't available yet and I'd hate to step back to a previous version. I'm glad I managed to set up my XP machine to being able to compile extensions using the VC++ toolkit which freely availbale from MS. See

So, I download the latest "stable" tar for perl (5.8.7) and try to compile it on the Solaris 8 (SPARC) box that I administrate. I try all sorts of different switches, but I can't get it to compile. I need it to be compiled with threads. Anyone have any wisdom on how best to do this? Here's a transcript of my latest attempt. It's long; you might want to skip to the bottom, where I try "make" and the fatal errors start happening.

Does anyone know how to create an extension DLL for Windows. I have no problem compiling my selfdevelopt extension for Linux, but can't seem to find any relevant information on how to compile an extension on Windows. So if you know where to find relevant information or have worked with your own extension your help would be mush appreciated. Thanks for your input!
