Compiling Python for Windows Phone 8

, 14 Mar 2013
This article talks about how to compile Python source code on WP8, the changes made on the source code, and an example using Python in a WP8 native app.

   C API, regardless of the current state of Python, or of its
   thread lock.  This may be called as many times as desired
   by a thread so long as each call is matched with a call to
   PyGILState_Release().  In general, other thread-state APIs may
   be used between _Ensure() and _Release() calls, so long as the
   thread-state is restored to its previous state before the Release().
   For example, normal use of the Py_BEGIN_ALLOW_THREADS/
   Py_END_ALLOW_THREADS macros are acceptable.

   The return value is an opaque "handle" to the thread state when
   PyGILState_Ensure() was called, and must be passed to
   PyGILState_Release() to ensure Python is left in the same state. Even
   though recursive calls are allowed, these handles can *not* be shared -
   each unique call to PyGILState_Ensure must save the handle for its
   call to PyGILState_Release.

   When the function returns, the current thread will hold the GIL.

   Failure is a fatal error.

   state will be the same as it was prior to the corresponding
   PyGILState_Ensure() call (but generally this state will be unknown to
   the caller, hence the use of the GILState API.)

   PyGILState_Release on the same thread.
