[SciPy-dev] recommended compiler for distributing scikits windows binaries
Mon Mar 23 12:56:30 CDT 2009
Pierre and I are preparing to do a first official release of the timeseries
scikit once numpy 1.3 is released and I was just wondering what compiler I
should be using to distribute binaries for windows.
What compiler is being used to build the official numpy binaries? MinGW? or
MSVC? I assume it is recommended to use the same compiler for building numpy C
extensions that was used to build numpy itself?
Also, do I need to compile separate versions using each of the binaries included
in the numpy superpack installers and thus create a "superpack" of my own for
the C extensions to work with all versions? or is that only needed for the lower
level numpy library itself? The C code in question doesn't do anything fancy,
just uses the basic numpy C api. And will binaries compiled against the current
numpy 1.3 beta version continue to work properly with the final released version?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
