Building Python: static library "3.2m"

Discussion in 'Python' started by Chris Angelico, May 23, 2011.

  1. Hi! Just a quickie, I hope, where someone will probably be able to
    answer off the top of his head.

    I downloaded the 3.2 sources with the intention of building that
    instead of using Ubuntu's default Python 2.6.6. Ran ./configure, make,
    sudo make install, and then fiddled with a few things like make all,
    make libinstall, make libainstall. Eventually got a libpython3.2m.a in
    /usr/local/lib.

    Question: Why "3.2m"? What does that m mean? It seems to have come up
    a couple of times in the build process.

    Thanks in advance!
