how do I know if I'm using a debug build of python


A quick question:
Is there any way for a python script to know if it's being executed by a
debug build of python (python_d.exe) instead of python?

Not sure what this returns in Windows as I run Linux but this returns to
namer of the python executable for my setup - maybe its what you want.

import sys
print sys.executable

- will print out the name of the python executable.

Below are 2 files that isolate the problem. Note, both programs hang (stop responding) with hyper-threading turned on (a BIOS setting), but work as expected with hyper-threading turned off. Note, the Windows task manager shows 2 CPUs on the Performance tab with hyper-threading is turned on. Both Python 2.3.5 and 2.4.3 (downloaded from python.org) have this problem. The operating system is MS Windows XP Professional.

The installation of Python 2.5 comes with a bunch of built-in extension modules (.pyd files) under the DLLs directory. I've downloaded the Python source code and am trying to build the debug versions of all of these files. However, some of the projects won't build because they are looking for header files that don't exist anywhere. Specifically, the non-building projects are: _bsddb _sqlite3 _ssl

I've got a system where I try to install extensions using /usr/local/bin/python setup.py install But, it fails when it tries to use a non-existant compiler path and specs file.
