Python 2.3 problem with extention-embedding in multi-threaded andmulti sub-interpreter environment

I am embedding python in my C++ application. I am using Python *2.3.2* with
a C++ extention DLL in multi-threaded environment. I am using SWIG-1.3.19 to
generate C++ to Python interface.

Now to explain it in details,
1. Python initialization [Py_Initialize()] and finalization [Py_Finalize()]
is done in the *main* thread.
2. For each new thread I create a separate sub-interpreter
[Py_NewInterpret er()].
3. Using PyRun_String("i mport myModule"...) before execution of python
script, extention module
is imported.
4. Each thread executes *multiple* python script using PyEval_EvalCode ()
using the class objects in
my extention DLL.
5. Each sub-interpreter is destroyed [Py_EndInterpret er()] at the end of
that particular thread.

I am observing that;
As explained above when multiple threads are running. And as one of these
threads finishes, in other running threads I start getting
"TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not callable" error on the methods called
on class objects in extention module.

The same code *works fine* with Python 2.2.2.

I have found these links more or less talking about the same problem
migrating from 2.2 to 2.3.
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/pyt...er/038237.html
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/pyt...ry/206851.html
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/pyt...ry/204040.html

I *guess* what is happening is global variables are zapped to "NoneType"
when one thread finishes and other thread trying to access them through the
Python script (step 4.) this error is generated. But it *works* sometimes
when(*guess*) the running thread is at step 3. and by importing the module
the global variables are re-initialized for "Type" information.

I tried using reload(myModule ) to solve the problem but that is generating
big memory leak every time it is called.

Is this a know issue with 2.3 (interpreter?) ? Or is there a change for 2.3
in the way embedding should be done in a multi-threaded and
multi-sub-interpreter environment ?

Anybody for help ?
Thanks,
Atul

I am currently writing an extention module that needs to recieve a list of characters that might vary in size from 0 to 8. This is written as a list of characters rather than a string because it's easier to manipulate. However, when I pass this list of characters into the extention module, it keeps giving errors. Is there a way to do one of the following? A. Change a list of chars to a single string or B. Read a list of chars in an...

I was lucky to find Milton L. Hankins' Python 1.5 port of gdbm.pyd on the web a while ago, but I was wondering if there is one that works with a more recent version of Python? (For me, that one kills python24\pythonw.exe in Pythonwin and SPE on import, though it's a VC++ Runtime Error, so it could be a different DLL problem somewhere...) It just seems a little odd that no one would have done this or that it's so tough to find. Of course, I...

While I have a reasonable understanding of the differences in new-style versus old-style classes, tonight while working a C extension module I realized I don't know how to indicate which style my C extension module should appear as. I'm following the Python docs for extended modules, but it doesn't say in there anyplace I can find which style I'm creating. My clue that something was wrong is when this: from cextension import Context

I was looking for a function or method that would return the index to the first matching element in a list. Coming from a C++ STL background, I thought it might be called "find". My first stop was the Sequence Types page of the Library Reference (http://docs.python.org/lib/typesseq.html); it wasn't there. A search of the Library Reference's index seemed to confirm that the function did not exist. A little later I realized it might be called...

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.
