[Python-Dev] readline and setup.py
Fri, 19 Jan 2001 22:46:24 +0100
The new setup.py procedure for Python causes readline not to
be built on my machine. Instead I get a linker error telling
me that termcap is not found.
Looking at my old Setup file, I have this line:
readline readline.c \
-I/usr/include/readline -L/usr/lib/termcap \
I guess, setup.py should be modified to include additional
library search paths -- shouldn't hurt on platforms which
don't need them.
