Subject: [Numpy-discussion] C extension compiling question

I'm trying to get a really simple toy example for a numpy extension
working (you may notice its based on the example in the numpy docs and
the python extension docs). The code is given below.



---------------------------------------------------------------

If you're trying to use numpy and standard pythons types, you might want to look 
into ctypes which allows you to write C extensions that pass arrays in a much 
easier way.  I was into writing "bare" C extensions from the ground up like you 
when someone put me onto ctypes.  MUCH easier and cleaner and, as a result, 
easier to debug.  I recommend it.
