I was ready to build scipy for windows with python2.4 ...
I have got the (now free!) Microsoft compiler VC7. I have been using it for a
month or so on a couple of projects. I did the necessary tweaking for
1) before I can even start: "setup.py build" complains about many things nor
1a) I think I can ignore fftw - for now ...
1b) I downloaded the ATLAS source - but that seems to be "tricky" (seems to
be meant more for linux) ==> I thought for the py24 build one should be able
to just reuse whatever was done for py23 - ATLAS and LAPACK and BLAS -
right ? Can someone make those available ?
1c) f2py ... is that available as binary ?
2) Really I'm mostly (only) in need of the plt module (for now). Is there an
easier way in this case ?
I read that the free (optimizing!) MS compiler is now generally preferred over
the cygwin/mingw solution - supposedly better performance...
