I've just started with Python and I discovered that the binding to the GNU readline is really basic. So about a week ago I started working on a binding for it and I have most of the work done. I need to finish the bindings for keymap functions and some of the functions in the completion part before the package could be considered complete.
I started to investigate the ways to package the work I've done and I discovered the distutil package. I'm trying to write a setup.py file, but I need the following things and I didn't figure out how to express them:
- the main C file is obtained by running the m4 program on a .m4 file. How can I specify this dependency and the rule for generating the C file?
- I need to define a C preprocessor macro that contains the version of the readline library. The way the things are setup now is by running a configure script that determines the version of the library. Can I do this with setup.py?
