<p>You can get the latest release of the SIP source code from
<a class="reference external" href="http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/software/sip/download">http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/software/sip/download</a>.</p>
<p>SIP is also included with all of the major Linux distributions. However, it
may be a version or two out of date.</p>
</div>
<div class="section" id="configuring">
<h2>Configuring<a class="headerlink" href="#configuring" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h2>
<p>After unpacking the source package (either a <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">.tar.gz</span></tt> or a <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">.zip</span></tt> file
depending on your platform) you should then check for any <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">README</span></tt> files
that relate to your platform.</p>
<p>Next you need to configure SIP by executing the <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">configure.py</span></tt> script. For
example:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><pre>python configure.py</pre>
</div>
<p>This assumes that the Python interpreter is on your path. Something like the
following may be appropriate on Windows:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><pre>c:\python26\python configure.py</pre>
</div>
<p>If you have multiple versions of Python installed then make sure you use the
interpreter for which you wish SIP to generate bindings for.</p>

<p>The <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">configure.py</span></tt> script takes many other options that allows the build
system to be finely tuned. These are of the form <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">name=value</span></tt> or
<tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">name+=value</span></tt>. The <em class="xref">--show-build-macros </em> option will display each supported <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">name</span></tt>, although not
all are applicable to all platforms.</p>
<p>The <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">name=value</span></tt> form means that <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">value</span></tt> will replace the existing value of
<tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">name</span></tt>.</p>
<p>The <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">name+=value</span></tt> form means that <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">value</span></tt> will be appended to the existing
value of <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">name</span></tt>.</p>
<p>For example, the following will disable support for C++ exceptions (and so
reduce the size of module binaries) when used with GCC:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><pre>python configure.py CXXFLAGS+=-fno-exceptions</pre>
</div>
<p>A pure Python module called <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">sipconfig.py</span></tt> is generated by <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">configure.py</span></tt>.
This defines each <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">name</span></tt> and its corresponding <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">value</span></tt>. Looking at it will
give you a good idea of how the build system uses the different options. It is
covered in detail in <a class="reference external" href="build_system.html#ref-build-system"><em>The Build System</em></a>.</p>
<div class="section" id="configuring-for-mingw">
<h3>Configuring for MinGW<a class="headerlink" href="#configuring-for-mingw" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h3>
<p>SIP, and the modules it generates, can be built with MinGW, the Windows port of
GCC. You must use the <a class="reference internal" href="#cmdoption-configure.py-p"><em class="xref">--platform</em></a> command line
option to specify the correct platform. For example:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><pre>c:\python26\python configure.py --platform win32-g++</pre>
</div>
</div>
<div class="section" id="configuring-for-the-borland-c-compiler">
<h3>Configuring for the Borland C++ Compiler<a class="headerlink" href="#configuring-for-the-borland-c-compiler" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h3>
<p>SIP, and the modules it generates, can be built with the free Borland C++
compiler. You must use the <a class="reference internal" href="#cmdoption-configure.py-p"><em class="xref">--platform</em></a> command line
option to specify the correct platform. For example:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><pre>c:\python26\python configure.py --platform win32-borland</pre>
</div>
<p>You must also make sure you have a Borland-compatible version of the Python
library. If you are using the standard Python distribution (built using the
Microsoft compiler) then you must convert the format of the Python library.
For example:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><pre>coff2omf python26.lib python26_bcpp.lib</pre>
</div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="section" id="building">
<h2>Building<a class="headerlink" href="#building" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h2>
<p>The next step is to build SIP by running your platform&#8217;s <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">make</span></tt> command. For
example:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre><span class="n">make</span>
</pre></div>
</div>
<p>The final step is to install SIP by running the following command:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><pre>make install</pre>
</div>
<p>(Depending on your system you may require root or administrator privileges.)</p>
<p>This will install the various SIP components.</p>
