#35 64-bit Windows support


Should probably pick away at this for the next release. Need compiler choice, build options, etc.

    What is the status on this one? It would be very nice to have this. Are there any specific problems which prevent a successful compile?

    There still isn't a Windows 64-bit installer for numpy, so that's a bit of a sticking point. It also looks like python(x,y) doesn't have a 64-bit version yet, either.

    We don't have any particular known issues that would prevent SpacePy in particular from installing on 64-bit Windows, just that the free compiler situation is pretty sticky. Feel free to give it a spin, and patches are definitely welcome.

    A user has let us know that Anaconda now ships a free Python distribution for 64-bit Windows. Some poking around indicates that it also bundles up gfortran so f2py will work, so I should be able to get an installer going to at least work with Anaconda. I'll also look into getting SpacePy included in Anaconda.
