python-dev and setting up setting up f2py on Windows XP

Hi,

I've been trying to get f2py working on Windows XP, I am using Python
2.3. I'm new to python so I'm not too sure what I'm doing yet. I need
the python-dev package to run f2py. I have been told this is just the
header files and .dll and I need to put them somewhere my C compiler
can find them. I've searched the web and none of the python-dev
packages I've found are for windows. I was wondering is this
automatically part of the windows version and if so how I set it up so
my C compiler can find them. If it is not part of the standard package
does anyone know where I can find it???

Any help at all would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Sile

I'm really not familiar with the package you are trying to use, nor
that familiar with what you get on windows. I would guess you did a
binary installation download, and you may need to get the python source
tarball instead - in order to get the files you need.

Barring that, I'm certain the headers are available through
sourceforge, they provide svn access for building python itself: more

Hope this helps.

The concept of "python-dev package" is a Debian concept which doesn't
apply to Windows. The standard installation on Windows provides the
header and library files that you need for interfacing with C.

Don't put things where your C compiler can find them; do a standard
no-frills install of Python2.4 using the .msi installer and tell your C
compiler where the goodies are.

E.g. using the MinGW32 gcc, you'd need things like:

gcc -I\python24\incl ude -lpython24 -L\python24\libs
[first is "i".upper() , second is "L".lower()]

Which C compiler are you using?

You will need to add "C:\Python2 4" to the path so that you can invoke
python easily; that will also enable anything else finding python24.dll
if you do a "me only" install of Python.

So give that a whirl and if you have any dramas, come back with
questions ...

HTH,
John

Hi John,

Thank you very much for your help and resolving my issue with
"python-dev". I'll hopefully get my problem sorted today, if not I'm
sure I'll be back with more questions! The C compiler I'm using is
Microsoft Visual Studio 8. I have been told there are potential
compatibility issues between this, my version of python and my fortran
compiler. I have to use python 2.3 as it is compatible with a CFD
package I'm using. I've resinstalled python properley so I'll
persevere with my exsisting C compiler this morning and try MINGW32 if
I have no joy.

Thanks again,

Sile
