i'm new to python and i'm trying to build a python extension on win98,
written in c++, with cygwin.
but i keep having the same error message, and i didnt't find much
resources on the web about it:
>g++ -I/cygdrive/c/python22/include -c demomodule.cpp -o demomodule.o
In file included from /cygdrive/c/python22/include/Python.h:62,
/cygdrive/c/python22/include/pyport.h:480:2: #error "LONG_BIT definition
appears wrong for platform (bad gcc/glibc config?)."
i read that it is mandatory to use Micro$oft visual c++ to build any
extensions on windows beacuse it's the same compiler used to build
python for windows.
does anybody has advices about that?
i would rather use cygwin/g++ but i don't know if it's possible or how
to fix this error message.
thanks in advance,
