1.3.1 Building on win32

Windows by default does not allow to run a posix shell. Here a different path is required. First change into the directory gsl_dist. Copy the file gsl_site_example.py and edit it to reflect your installation of GSL and SWIG if you want to run it yourself. The pygsl windows binaries distributed over http://sourceforge.net/projects/pygsl/ are built using the mingw32 compiler.

Uninstall GSL interface

rm -r "python install path"/lib/python"version"/site-packages/pygsl


the directory tests contains several testsuites, based on python unittest. The script run_test.py in this directory will run one after the other.
