Show libraries in the system on which NumPy was built.

Print information about various resources (libraries, library directories, include directories, etc.) in the system on which NumPy was built.

Returns the directory containing NumPy C header files.


Classes specifying the information to be printed are defined in the numpy.distutils.system_info module.

Information may include:

  • language: language used to write the libraries (mostly C or f77)

  • libraries: names of libraries found in the system

  • library_dirs: directories containing the libraries

  • include_dirs: directories containing library header files

  • src_dirs: directories containing library source files

  • define_macros: preprocessor macros used by distutils.setup

  • baseline: minimum CPU features required

  • found: dispatched features supported in the system

  • not found: dispatched features that are not supported in the system
