Problem with "PyRun_SimpleSt ring" while interfacing Python with C

6 New Member
Hi all!! .. I am New member to this group.

And also new to C/PYTHON API coding.

I am trying to have two way communication i,e i am calling from python to C and then from C to python.
I have no problem calling c func from python....
But problem is for calling C to Python
I am trying to call a python function multiple times by passing one parameter 'fun(param)' from C code .
I am getting segmentation fault error while executing .
The code i am is below...

# Python code..
import API # It is a shared library created by using 'Swig' Tool
class MyApp :
__init__(self, parent) # function to create GUI
//Code to create GUI.. (Text box)
API.function() ## here I am calling 'function()' (which is in 'call.c')

def fun(recv) :
//Here i am inserting the received(recv) value in GUI Text Widget.

app = MyApp() //creating object to class 'MyApp'

// C code...
// call.c

printf"Called from python\n"

while(first_tim e) {
Py_Initialise() ;
PyRun_SimpleStr ing("import pyfile"); //pyfile is my python file
PyRun_SimpleStr ing("pyfile.app .fun('SUCCESS') "); //fun is function inside pyfile and I am passing 'SUCCESS' as the parameter
// Py_Finalize();

To be more specific i am calling PyRun_SimpleStr ing("pyfile.fun ('SUCCESS')")
multiple times , initializing and importing only once...And Finalizing in the end .(If i initialize and finalize everytime i invoke the function i got segmentation fault error)

Can anyboby give a reason and solution to this problem...
Thanks in advance..

Welcome to TheScripts! You have inadvertantly posted your question in the MS Access Forum! We have both Python and C/C++ forums here, but since you indicate that your problem is calling Python from C, I'm moving your post to the C/C++ forum!

  1. while(first_time) {
  2. Py_Initialise();
  3. PyRun_SimpleString("import pyfile"); //pyfile is my python file
  4. }
This is an infinite loop. Need to set first_time to something other than 1 after you run
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. PyRun_SimpleString("import pyfile");
This probably won't fix it but its something you should do.

No actually actually i have declared first time as, static int first_time=0. And I am incrementing it inside the loop. But still I am grtting the problem.

Dear sir, I am used to developing C program on MSVC7.0 platform. This is my first time to use Python for calling by C program. Now, it is hard to deal with the problem about extracting the variable which be definied in Python. That how can I do? I have gotten the JPython 's sample that the following code can be looked. Have anyone help me to obtain same results that be called by Python's C API? What do I mean?

Having seen the number of lost souls asking questions about embedding Python in the archives of this group, I hesitate to add myself to their number, but I've hit a problem I can't quite get my head around.

The problem that each command seems to be executed in its own context and knows...

Hi, I'm trying to create a program(written in C) that does the following things using embedded Python: 1. Create a module(say, "MyModule") 2. Create a class in that module(say, "MyClass") 3. Create a function in that module(say, "MyFunction") The Python-code would look like this: MyClass.py:

I have the following code, that seems to make sense to me. However, it crashes about 1/3 of the times. My platform is Python 2.4.1 on WXP (I tried the release version from the msi and the debug version built by me, both downloaded today to have the latest version).

I have posted about this problem before.

Now I have an example application that almost works, but it is far from reliable. If I run this several times I get crashes telling me that the heap is modified after deallocation....

I am embedding Python in a MSVC++ (2005) application. The application creates some environment and then launches a Python script that will call some functions exported from the MSVC++ application. I want to be able to debug the Python script by using a debug server, like Winpdb (winpdb.org). I use ActivePython, Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, and Winpdb 1.3.8.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
