I’m having problems building matplotlib on windows from a folder from SVN, and haven’t done it
before (previously had used the prebuilt binary download). I don’t know what I am doing wrong.
I’m on winXP, Python 2.5. and will be using wxPython 220.127.116.11 with matplotlib as well.
The folder with the contents from SVN I’ve named matplotlib_svn. From the cmd line and
while in that directory I wrote
python setup.py build
and got what follows. I’m not sure what I am to do (regarding finding an appropriate
compiler). Any help is appreciated.
