- Debug and Release versions of python extensions under
windows are now compiled in different directories (as it should be!).
How about using the same convention Python itself does?
* Debug and release outputs go into the same directory (as they have different names - _d for debug). This allows people to add the build directory to their sys.path, and have it work for both debug and release.
* Build\Temp\Release and Build\Temp\Debug are where the intermediate files go. This makes it easy to manually clean your file system - one directory and all temp files are gone.
