Recipe: Building PyStemmer on Windows – fixed!

So I tried to build pyStemmer 1.1.0 for Python 2.7 on Windows and it did not work out of the box. On closer examination I found out that pyStemmer’s setup.py is flawed on line 24:

...
and os.path.split(line.strip())[0] in library_core_dirs]
...

did not find all necessary c files for the language stemmers. This is due to os.path.split not being able to strip the “\” at the end of each entry in mkinc_utf8.mak. This can be fixed easily by changing this line to the following:

...
and os.path.split(line.split()[0].strip())[0] in library_core_dirs]
...

HTH.
