- 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.
It seems my description was unclear: Intermediate files go into build\temp.win32\Release... or build\temp.win32\Debug... These are: .obj, .lib, .exp files.
Debug and Release outputs go into the same directory, debug versions have _d appended.
Cleaning files: distutils now has a clean command (which will delete build\temp.win32 directory): Manual cleaning not needed.
