[Numpy-discussion] Building on WinXP 64-bit, Intel Compilers

   Thanks for your response. I manually edited one of the python files
(ccompiler.py I think) to change icc.exe to icl.exe. (This is a trick I used
to use to get F2PY to compile on Windows platforms.) Since icl is a drop-in
replacement for the visual studio compiler / linker, I'd like to edit the
python files configuring this (msvc) but I could not find anything(?) If you
could point me towards the config files(s) for the visual studio compiler
(I'm assuming are configured for the Windows file extensions already) I
could likely make some headway.
