Windows embedding problems with stdin and stdout


I have Python embedded with my other code, and when my other code opens
a console and redirects stdout, stdin and stderr to it, then calls
PyRun_Interacti veLoop, it immediately returns with an EOF.

After some debugging the reason for this appears to be that the stdin
and stdout that the ReadLine function in the tokeniser include are not
affected by my redirection and refer to a non-terminal so don't stall
waiting for input from my console.

This is the C code, effectively. It should suffice as an
example of what I am doing, although as it is from memory,
it may have minor semantic errors, please ignore them:

/* This goes nowhere because the old stdin and stdout are
no longer valid */
printf("Test\n" );

/* This opens a console and redirects the in, out and err */
freopen("CONIN$ ", "r", stdin);
freopen("CONOUT $", "a", stdout);
freopen("CONOUT $", "a", stderr);

/* I've tested stdin, stdout and stderr at this point and they
all work correctly on the opened console window. */
printf("Test stdout working, isatty(stdin) = %d\n",
isatty(fileno(s tdin)));
/* Returns 64 */

/* This call returns immediately. The stdin and stdout when
the code gets to the actual reading, return isatty(fileno(x ))
== 0 and so it uses the non terminal reading. */
PyRun_Interacti veLoop(stdin, "Opened Console");

Can anyone help me? I have no idea how to get Python to adopt
the new stdin, stdout and stderr, but I have to assume it is
pretty straightforward .

Hi, I'm extending a windows application (C++) by embedding Python calls. It seems to be a known problem that windows applications detach immediately from the calling console, so that all output to stdout (from both C++ and Python) doesn't get shown anywhere. A workaround seems to be the allocation of a windows console and redirecting...
