5# SYNOPSIS
6#
7#   AC_PYTHON_DEVEL([version])
8#
9# DESCRIPTION
10#
11#   Note: Defines as a precious variable "PYTHON_VERSION". Don't override it
12#   in your configure.ac.
13#
14#   This macro checks for Python and tries to get the include path to
15#   'Python.h'. It provides the $(PYTHON_CPPFLAGS) and $(PYTHON_LDFLAGS)
16#   output variables. It also exports $(PYTHON_EXTRA_LIBS) and
17#   $(PYTHON_EXTRA_LDFLAGS) for embedding Python in your code.
18#
19#   You can search for some particular version of Python by passing a
20#   parameter to this macro, for example ">= '2.3.1'", or "== '2.4'". Please
21#   note that you *have* to pass also an operator along with the version to
22#   match, and pay special attention to the single quotes surrounding the
23#   version number. Don't use "PYTHON_VERSION" for this: that environment
24#   variable is declared as precious and thus reserved for the end-user.
25#
26#   This macro should work for all versions of Python >= 2.1.0. As an end
27#   user, you can disable the check for the python version by setting the
28#   PYTHON_NOVERSIONCHECK environment variable to something else than the
29#   empty string.
30#
31#   If you need to use this macro for an older Python version, please
32#   contact the authors. We're always open for feedback.
