Important: my Windows is 64-bit, but gcc, Python etc is 32-bit. You will need a recent MinGW gcc, personally I use the 2.7.1 version from "equation.com", but any recent Mingw should be fine.
Download the source code, I provide them here for convenience, I think these are the original packages:
First I had to modify Python distutils. This is in the file Lib/distutils/cygwinccompiler.py in the Python install dir, the default location is C:\Python27. Find the mingw32compiler class and remove all occurences of the flag "-mno-cygwin".
umath_define_macros = [('HAVE_INVERSE_HYPERBOLIC', '0')]change the 0 to 1. Decide where to install Numeric, I chose to put it in a directory called C:\num24.2pygist1.5.28 When done and assuming gcc and python is properly installed, Numeric should build and install with the command
python setup.py install --prefix=C:\num24.2pygist1.5.28
include_dirs = [ 'src/gist', 'src/play', 'src/play/win', 'c:/num24.2pygist1.5.28/include' ]Next file to change is "src\play\win\playw.h" at line 60. Not sure what is correct to do here yet, but commenting out the line with "extern void..." like this
/* if set non-zero, p_abort will call this */ //extern void (*w_abort_hook)(void);should make the build and install command
python setup.py install --prefix=C:\num24.2pygist1.5.28work just fine. After setting the environment variables as described on here, and commenting out the calls to gist.winkill in the file gistdemolow.py, it should be possible to test the installation like this
