One of the nits noted in, which introduced ccompiler.has_function, was that it does not clean up after itself.

This patch uses a TemporaryDirectory context to ensure that the files created during has_function are cleaned up.

Hi Min RK, could you please update your patch so that it would cleanly apply to the tip of default branch. Also since you're re-writing a big chunk of that function, could I ask you to use with context manager for the temporary source file.

Absolutely, I'll try to do that tomorrow.

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
