[Numpy-discussion] Numpy depends on OpenSSL ???
Wed Sep 23 10:52:30 CDT 2009
I have discovered the hard way that numpy depends on openssl.
I am building a 64 bit python environment for the macintosh. I
currently do not have a 64 bit openssl library installed, so the python
interpreter does not have hashlib. (hashlib gets its md5 function from
the openssl library.)
The problem is in numpy/core/code_generators/genapi.py, where it appears
to be trying to make an md5 hash of the declarations of some of the C
What is this hash used for? Is there a particular reason that it needs
to be cryptographically strong?
