after embedding and extending python (using swig) problem importing (non-core) modules

Hi Folks,

I currenty extended some of my C++ functionality to python and also
embedded python to use python functionality in my C++ system (and use
as well these extended functions).

While this works fine with the core python functionality, as soon as I
run a script (on the embedded system) which tries to import modules
which are not in the core system, like "xml" or "re", it fails and says
it cannot find the related dll (for example in the case of re the
_sre.pyd). It works fine if i run the script with the 'regular'
interpreter.

It does not look like a path-problem to me, so I'm clueless right now.
I could work around this extending some functions to python and use
them, but then I lose what I was aiming for, the "power" of python and
python-modules.

Do i have to tell the embedded python system somehow where to look for
extension dll's? (it even does not work if i have the pyd files in the
(same) folder than the system where I start my embedded python program.

It would be great if someone would have an idea, at least how to get me
started on this.

thanks a lot in advance,
-stefan

Is this in debug mode? If so, make sure you have the debug versions of
those dll's in your path (i.e. _sre_d.pyd etc.)...

Du you use program in linux? I work in windows, but I think it's a way
to tell your program the module path like this:

char path[MAX_PATH], cpy_cmd[MAX_PATH];
GetCurrentDirec tory( MAX_PATH, path );
sprintf( cpy_cmd, "sys.path.appen d(r\'%s\\module s\')", path );
PyRun_SimpleStr ing("import sys"); // load build-in
module sys
PyRun_SimpleStr ing( cpy_cmd ); // set my modules path

thanks a lot for the quick answer.

I had to provide the debug-versions, since I was in debug mode, like
you already expected! thanks a lot again!

I am using Python2.3 version with SWIG-1.3.19 to access C++ interface provided by a DLL. Some of its function returns MFC class objects like CString , CMap. I tried to generate wrapper for these classes using SWIG by including respective header files in .i file. But it doesn't work. Swig reports hundreds parsing errors in MFC's file. Could you give me any directions.. Thank you in anticipation

Hi Everyone, I am a beginner on cross language development. My problem at hand is to build a python interface for a C++ application built on top of a 3D game engine. The purpose of this python interface is providing a convenient scripting toolkit for the application. One example is that a user can write a python script like: player = Player() game.loadPlayer(player) player.moveTo(location)

I have been playing around with this issue for a while and seen some previous posting trying to address the problem but I haven't seen any answers to the problem so I am reposting it in my quest for a solution.

I have some pre-compiled python modules that come with the dspace applications. I am pretty sure...

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,...
