Hi all --
just checked in a new command, "install_headers", for installing C/C++ headers. This makes the NumPy setup script a lot smaller, and should work similar wonders for CXX and any other module distribution that needs to install header files. (Commonly needed by extensions whose C code is used by other extensions.)
On Unix, header files are installed to $prefix/include/python1.x/$distname> -- eg. for NumPy, $prefix/include/python1.x/Numerical.
On Windows, they go in $prefix\Include$distname, and on Mac OS to $prefix:Include:$distname.
Please, give the latest CVS code a whirl -- I'd especially like to hear if anyone else has setup scripts that install header files, and find out if "install_headers" worked for you.
