Getting Python - C modules to build on Mac

  • C modules are modules written in C with a simple python wrapper
  • They will require the compiler to be run and built
  • C Compiler on the OSX is clang not gcc
  • When you want to specify include directory you use the environment variable C_INCLUDE_PATH and not the traditional INCLUDE
  • When you want to specify library path for the linker you use LIBRARY_PATH and not LD_LIBRARY_PATH
