VisualStudio200 5 supported in distutils

mg
Hello,

I try to compile Python and several packages (like Numarray) with Visual
Studio 2005. I downloaded the last version of Python from Subversion,
and project files are provided for Visual Studio 2005. With some few
simple corrections, everything compile and Python run correctly.

Unfortunately, distutils does not support VisualStudio200 5. I tried to
modify the file msvccompiler.py without success (this case requires to
support some changes of the Visual Studio 8 register for both Win32 and
Win64). So, I wonder if the integration of VisualStudio200 5 in distutils
is scheduled in the Python developments or better, if someone has
experiences or patch to support VisualStudio200 5 in distutils.

Thanks,
Mathieu.

You shouldn't attempt to do that. Even if you manage to convince
distutils to use VS 2005 to compile your extension, the resulting
code may crash Python because of obscure incompatibiliti es between
the compiler that was used to compile Python (VS 2003) and the compiler
that was used to compile the extension (VS 2005).

Whether or not it will actually crash depends on obscure details
of the API that the extension uses.

Martin

Sure, but what if I succesfully compile Python with VS 2005? Hier ist
der Hund begraben, distutils cann't handle this compiler so I'll be
unable to compile any extension for my home-baken Python.

I know the incompatibility problem to have Python compiled with one
compiler and packages with another one. Nevertheless, in my case, Python
is well compiled with VisualStudio200 5 thank to project files provided
by Mr Python himself. So, Python is not yet ready to support completely
VisualStudio200 5: Python can be compiled with VisualStudio200 5 but a
VisualStudio200 5-compiled-Python can not install additional packages.

So, if someone can help me or provides me a solution, I am very
interested ;-)

It sure can. Just open a "Visual Studio Command Prompt" (or whatever
its name), and make sure MSSdk and DISTUTILS_USE_S DK are both set.
Then distutils will use the compiler from PATH, rather than the
pre-configured one.

As I just wrote in a different message: Make sure DISTUTILS_USE_S DK
and MSSdk are both set, and arrange PATH to point to the compiler to
want to use; then distutils will obey you.

I have a program that has Python and C code. I added Extension stuff to setup.py and all .c and .h files get into tarball fine. (I have something like Extension("foo", glob.glob("bar/*.") ) When I try to INSTALL the package it says header (.h) file is an unknown type. How fix this???

I'm trying to build PyBison on Mac OS X, and I'm running into some problems with the distutils. Just for starters: PyBison requires Pyrex. This is not a problem, and Pyrex seems to work without problems, at least the primes sample module shows a nice 25 to 30 fold speed increase over the pure python version. I used the distutils to create the module from the primes.pyx sample, following the setup.py from the PyBison distrubution:
