using boost to extend python with c++

P: n/a
Hi,

I've been trying for days to make either boost.python or swig to
work for me. The one I have gotten the closest to is boost. Note that
this is for windows XP. I'm not much of an unix person besides doing
simple ls and copy paste.

What I have done is to download the boost library: C:\boost_1_34_0
I downloaded the bjam library: C:\boost-jam-3.1.14-1-ntx86

I then set up the path so that I could do bjam from anywhere suing the
coomand prompt. Did the same for python and g++. I'm using the g++
that came with bloodshed DevC++ compiler.

So, I navigated myself to the tutorial example in the boost library.
C:\boost_1_34_0\libs\python\example\tutorial

In the command prompt I typed bjam and I got the following error message.

C:\boost_1_34_0\libs\python\example\tutorial>bjam
Jamroot:17: in modules.load
rule python-extension unknown in module
Jamfile</C:/boost_1_34_0/libs/python/example/tutorial>.

in boost-build
C:\boost_1_34_0\libs\python\example\boost-build.jam:7: in module scope
I've have been trying desperately for 3 days. I also tried swig with
similar results but I feel I'm closer to solving the issue with boost
than with swig. I'm at a total lost here. I have tried the tutorials
in the boost web page but I just don't get anywhere.

I think your paste is incomplete.

Please see http://lists.boost.org/boost-build/2007/05/16666.php -- the
solution is to add "using python ;" to tools/build/v2/user-config.jam.
