ctypes on Mac OS X 10.4 with gcc 4.0

python :: programming :: macosx

I had some trouble installing ctypes on a 10.4 server tonight, and found
little post

that gave a patch for it. Unfortunately, this was for the file in 2004
and I had to manually edit the current 4000+ line file.

Apparently, this was in CVS in 2004 but hasn't made it into a distro

For the search engines, I will post the error message (where xxx are
your line numbers):

source/_ctypes.c:xxx: error: static declaration of 'Pointer_Type'
follows non-static declaration
source/ctypes.h:xxx: error: previous declaration of 'Pointer_Type' was

And here's a copy of my diff against _ctypes.c in ctypes 0.9.6:
