Embedding Python in C ---HELP!

Member 9713570 asked:

Open original thread
By typing "which python" I confirmed that I have python in my environment. The version my python is 2.6.5. However when I include Python.h (#include <python.h>) I got the error:

# gcc -o EmbPythonInC_1.exe EmbPythonInC_1.c
EmbPythonInC_1.c:2:20: fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

Thanks,

Tom

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
