  1. Dear Thomas Cokelaer,

    first off, thank you so much for writing the spectrum module. It should come in handy. At the moment my work laptop is running Windows and when compiling the module got the following error:

    C:\MinGW32-xy\bin\gcc.exe -mno-cygwin -mdll -O -Wall -IC:\Python27\include -IC:\Python27\PC -c src/cpp/mydpss.c -o build\temp.win32-2.7\Release\src\cpp\mydpss.o
    writing build\temp.win32-2.7\Release\src\cpp\mydpss.def
    C:\MinGW32-xy\bin\gcc.exe -mno-cygwin -shared -s build\temp.win32-2.7\Release\src\cpp\mydpss.o build\temp.win32-2.7\Release\src\cpp\mydpss.def -LC:\Python27\libs -LC:\Python27\PCbuild -lpython27 -lmsvcr90 -o build\lib.win32-2.7\spectrum\mydpss.pyd
    Cannot export initmydpss: symbol not defined
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    error: command ‘gcc’ failed with exit status 1

    Seems that the distutils automatically renerate a .def file which tries to export initmydpss(). This is a default function that get called when python inits your module. I solved the error with an ugly hack: just adding a template function to src/cpp/mydpss.c:


    This fixes the error, but it is a bit weird. Just thought I’d let you know about this.
