Builtin modules as external pyds
I'm in the middle of testing zmake and have run into an interesting problem. I assume that the problem is not with my code... but who knows ;). Compiler plugin is MSVC on windows 95.
I'm compiling a super-small python lib with most modules external (such as array etc) so that I can pick'n'choose the python size. I have two zmake rules: Python-lib-modules-static and Python-lib-modules-dynamic. If you add the setup rule (ie array) to the first it is bound into the pythonlib without problems (adds it to config.c etc etc). If I add array to Python-lib-modules-dynamic it compiles but the link fails because:
Unresolved external symbol _PyExc_ValueError...
However, if I add the Zope Extensions to the python-lib-modules-dynamic rule then they compile and link fine. They of cause have plenty of references to PyExc_ValueError. The generated pythonlib (ex array etc) works fine with a pre-compiled python binary.
I note in the Setup.in in Modules array is underneath a commented out *shared*. My question is: can array and friends be compiled as pyd's or do I have to add some Windows magic to them to get it to work?
