Hi,

I've done a patch for allowing compiling the last version of numexpr with
the MSVC Toolkit 2003 compiler on Windows platforms. You can fetch it
from:

http://www.pytables.org/trac/changeset/2514/trunk

BTW, I understand now why Tim Hochberg was so worried about the time
that it takes to compile numexpr on Win platforms. On my Pentium4 @ 2
GHz, and using the MSVC Toolkit 2003, compiling numexpr takes 20 minutes
aprox. (!). With the same machine and using GCC under Linux it takes no
more than 1 minute. Mmmm, I think it's time to look at the MINGW
compiler (GCC based).

Cheers,

Francesc
