ABSTRACT

This paper describes the method used to create Python Extensions using the Borland 5.5 C++ Compiler (BCC). This command line compiler is available free from http://www.borland.com/ bcppbuilder/freecompiler/. I describe the steps that are necessary to produce the extension from the C source code and how to set up the associated files for the compiler and linker. These extensions work with the standard Windows distribution of Python. The process used to produce the extension is very easy and consists of running a simple batch file that I provide as part of this package. I also have a short reference section at the end of this paper that may be helpful.

Version 3.0 updates the linking library to Python 2.0. I have also added a section about using VIDE a free and useful IDE.
