.. _ref-distutils:
Building Your Extension with distutils
To build the example in :ref:`ref-simple-c++-example` using distutils, it is
sufficient to create a standard ````, listing ``word.sip`` among the
files to build, and hook-up SIP into distutils::
from distutils.core import setup, Extension
import sipdistutils
name = 'word',
versione = '1.0',
Extension("word", ["word.sip", "word.cpp"]),
cmdclass = {'build_ext': sipdistutils.build_ext}
As we can see, the above is a normal distutils setup script, with just a
special line which is needed so that SIP can see and process ``word.sip``.
Then, running `` build`` will build our extension module.
If you want to use any of sip's command-line options described in
:ref:`ref-command-line`, there is a new option available for the
``build_ext`` command in distutils: ``--sip-opts``. So you can either invoke
distutils as follows::
$ python build_ext --sip-opts="-e -g" build
or you can leverage distutils' config file support by creating a ``setup.cfg``
file in the supported system or local paths (eg: in the same directory of
````) with these contents::
sip-opts = -e -g
and then run `` build`` as usual.
