Hi, I'm creating an extension called _bright.so on linux. I can
import it with import _bright, but how can I import bright and get the
On windows, I've been able to import bright instead of import _bright,
but on Linux it seems to need the underscore. I'm tempted to create a
bright.py with from _bright import *, but I'm wondering if there's a
more direct way.
Also, I'm using scons to generate my lib, and it insists on prepending
the characters lib to my library name, so if I tell it to generate
_bright.so it gives me lib_bright.so. Is there a way of turning this
off so I don't have to rename it back to _bright.so?
