swig win32 scons


I spent the morning figuring out how to use SWIG on Microsoft Windows.
I compiled the example from the SWIG tutorial on http://www.swig.org.
The biggest stumbling block was not knowing that I needed to rename
the DLL created to have a PYD extension. I also ended up writing
a .def file for exporting functions from the DLL.

Here is my SConstruct file for using SCons to build the library. It is
not perfect, but it should be evident as to what I was doing. I hope
that others will be able to find this in the future and save
themselves some time.:
############### ###############
SWIG_EXE = r'C:\Python25\s wig\swig.exe'
env = Environment(SWI G=SWIG_EXE,
CPPPATH=[r'C:\Python25\i nclude'],
LIBPATH=[r'C:\Python25\l ibs'])
swigObject = env.SharedObjec t(['example.i'])
copyToPYD = Copy('_example. pyd', '_example.dll')
env.AddPostActi on('_example.dl l', copyToPYD)
env.SharedLibra ry('_example.dl l', ['example.c', swigObject])

It turns out I didn't need the DEF file for exports.

I'm attempting to follow the instructions at http://sebsauvage.net/python/mingw.html, without luck. I have Python 2.3, MinGW 3.2.3, ans SWIG 1.3.19. I get an export error on "initexample" when attempting the example. Do I need some extra switches to get SWIG to create that function? Or is it something else? Here's my example build:

Hi, I'm using Python in my win32 app by linking to the python23.dll. I'm trying to expose some c++ code in my app to Python so I can make application calls from Python scripts (according to the Python windows FAQ I shouldn't have to make a seperate dll, see link below). I create a MyModule.i file for swig which contains a simple test c++ class. I run swig on it with the following options: swig -python -c++ -includeall -shadow MyModule.i,...

Hey guys, here's a little question. I'm looking for something like a build system, where I can set up a bunch of jobs with dependencies, and have them run in parallel. Ideally, I'd like a system where jobs can be run in parallel, all the stdout and stderr for each job is kept in a database of some kind, jobs can be anything that can be run at a command line, and a failing job won't cause the whole run to fail. I've been looking into some...

Hi, I'm using Cygwin and ActiveState perl to try to compile a sample application using SWIG. I'm using the short tutorial from http://www.swig.org/tutorial.html (the perl part of it), but with a simplified version of their example (just a void hello() {printf("Hello, world!\n");} and corresponding .i interface file, %module hello \ extern void hello();). I first do swig -perl5 hello.i which works fine.

Hi, I just installed scons on win32 that has cygwin but uses ActiveState python. If I do "import SCons", the lib isn't found. The win32 installer seemed very complete, but the scons lib doesn't seem to be in any dir python knows about. Is there another install step I need to do? TIA, -T
