python env setup

I have a VirtualEnv, and I wanted to install a Python package pyfftw in this case.


pip install pyfftw

But I can se some C compiler error, which was due to a .h file not being found.

I double checked I had the Development files (.C and .H) and I did.

It turns out that my Dev env does not look in my local area .... so to fix

  export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
  export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"
  export CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include"

Then in the same shell

pip install py

And all is working.
