Object finalization

I have a question about Python object finalization. I would like to be notified when an Object is deallocated. The problem is I would like to do it in C.
The only way to register a finalizer I found out is to create a weak reference object and give it a callback. But the callback must be a Python function not C. That seems to be too difficult.

Is there any (undocumented) way to do PyObject_Regist erFinalizer(PyO bject *o, C-Callback-Func)?

Thanks a lot.

Best Regards,

Hi, Lately i've been (and still am) fixing some memory leaks problems in the project i just took over when i got this new job. Among the other issues i've noticed that for localy created objects it makes difference to explicitly put them to null after working with them is done - it somehow makes the GC collect them sooner, like here: void SomeFunc() { MyClass c = new MyClass();

Is it possible to trap the creation of a new object and carry out other operations after it's been created? For example, if creating an object of a specific type, then add a reference to a global collection. Thanks, Rob.

How have you handled the finalization of thread-specific unmanaged resources? My question pertains specifically to using the DDEML which is a thread-specific API. In other words, every call to the API using the same handle must be made on the same thread as the one that obtained the handle. Obviously, there is a conflict with the GC and the finalizer thread in cases where the programmer forgets to call Dispose on a wrapper class.

I understand the IDisposable interface and how the using instruction will call the Dispose method of an object. What if a reference to an object is passed to a 2nd thread? And the object contains a handle to an open file. The Dispose( ) method closes the handle. How would the Dispose( ) method called from the end of the using block in the 1st thread know that references to the object still exists in other threads?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

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,...
