[Numpy-discussion] failed to build numpy and Numeric in Windows

Python on the same machine was built with MSVS2005. I think it is
capable of building python modules. 

Interestingly, if I replace "floor" with "ceil" in that line of code. It
will build just fine, and of course, the Numeric.floor() will work just
like Numeric.ceil():

static void * floor_data[] = { (void *)ceil,  (void *)ceil,  (void
*)"floor",  };

Hmm. I was pretty sure that MSVS2005 was not capable of building Python
extension modules that work with the official Python interpreter builds.
doesn't explain or solve the problem that you state, but if the problem
restricted to MSVS2005, it may not be worth solving.
