Hello all

I'm having problems recompiling SciPy from SVN with Visual Studio .NET 2003.

When compiling Lib\special\cephes\const.c, the following error occurs:

Lib\special\cephes\const.c(92) : error C2099: initializer is not a constant
Lib\special\cephes\const.c(97) : error C2099: initializer is not a constant

This problem was discussed in comp.lang.c as "initializer is not a
constant error ??" way back in 2004, when somebody else was also
trying to compile some variation on this same code.


libxml2's trionan.c has some ideas for how to fix this problem.


I added a ticket to Trac:
