Weirdness when trying to use Boost.python

I'm planning to write a large program that will have advanced scripting in
python in which the scripter will subclass c++ objects to add
functionality. this leads me to boost.python (if you dont already know
about boost.python dont bother reading farther cause its a kind of a
technical question) anyways i embeded python in a litte c++ test app i
wrote and got it working fine. eg: i could write a little python program
and my app would load and run it. then i added boost.python to expose a
sample class to the python code. i think i know how to use boost cause i
basically followed the tutorial and the code compiles fine but the module
boost is supposedly creating doesn't exist when the code (python code) is
run . now if i use just the C python API can can interface some simple
functions but not classes. there is an api which creates the module based
on a object returned from another api. Now i cant get boost to give me that
object. since there is no readily apparent way of doing this i assumed that
boost did i t automatically but this apears not to be true. Also looking at
the boost source was just more confusing. everyting uses INSANE macros
which call other macros though 50+ include files so no help there. the
boost documentation talks about exposing classes and embedding python but
not the two together. Any ideas? Oh also just FYI: I'm running XP Prof,
using VC++ 6 SP5, Python 2.3.2, and the current CVS of Boost cause the
release only supports python 2.2.x.

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

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,...
