use embedded python to build a dll

Hi all,
I got a problem using the embedded python. I'll be appreciated if some one
can show me the way.

What i want is,
1.build a dll(test.dll/test.lib) which uses the embedded python, for
example, i want to use the 're' module.
2.build a exe(usedll.exe) which uses that dll.
3.use py2exe to eliminate the dependence of the python environment.

here is the cpp file to build test.dll/test.lib

**query.py is the python script i used. so i import the module 'query'**

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
#pragma comment(lib, "d:\\\\sdk\\Pyt hon23\\libs\\py thon23.lib")
#include "d:\sdk\python2 3\include\pytho n.h"

DWORD ul_reason_for_c all,
LPVOID lpReserved
return TRUE;
__declspec(dlle xport) void __stdcall DoIt()
Py_Initialize() ;
PyObject *pM=PyImport_Im portModuleEx("q uery", NULL, NULL, NULL);
std::cout<<"ok" ;

here is the file to build usedll.exe

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "windows.h"

#pragma comment(lib, "..\\Release\\t est.lib")

__declspec(dlli mport) void __stdcall DoIt();
int main(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])

return 0;

i use setup.py file like this,

from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe

and then
python setup.py py2exe --includes query --packages encodings

and i got a bunch of files.

Then I put usedll.exe test.dll test.lib query.py and all of these files
generated by py2exe in the same directory. I run the usedll.exe, then I got
a run time error 'this application has requested the runtime to terminate it
in an unusual way...'

but if i don't use those files generated by py2exe, i.e. i use the python
environment on my machine, every thing is fine.

I can not figure out where is the problem. Could anyone give me a hint?

Hi I'm trying to understand how Python handles memory usage and dynamic object loading and unloading. Problem to solve? Build a very low memory footprint (non-GUI) Python application for Unix/Windows. Why use Python? End user flexibility. So far it seems that (on Windows): (1) memory increases when you import <module>. Expected behaviour. (2) memory does not release when you del <module>. Why not? Is Python

Java seems to have taken off as the platform and language of choice for many embedded devices. Would it be feasible for Python(perhaps running on an embedded version of Linux) to act in such a capacity.

Is the Python interpreter portable...

Hi, I love Python! I've been using it for a couple of years now and have found it to be a highly productive language.

I'm trying to embed Python 2.3.5 into a C++ application on Windows XP. When I build my app with debug symbols and link to a debug build of Python, then my program seems to crash most (but not all) of the time. Sometimes it crashes on startup, and sometimes at exit, sometimes not at all. I haven't seen it crash with non-debug builds of my app and Python. The release build runs my Python test code just fine. When the debug build doesn't...

I have a dll/so which embeds python. I can verify it works by compiling it as an executable and adding an appropriate main. I tried to write unit tests for this library with ctypes and a simple python script. Access violations and other strange things result. I suspect this is because I am basically embedding python in python at this point. How can I make my dll/so with embedded python support use via ctypes?

Is there a Python packaging that is specifically for embedded systems? ie, very small and configurable so the user gets to select what modules to install? For Linux-based embedded systems in particular? I'm thinking of running it on the Linksys's Linux-based open source router WRT54G. It has 4MB flash and 16MB RAM. I think another model has 16MB flash. Any possibilities of running Python on these systems?

Does Python 2.5.2's embedded SQLite support full text searching? Sqlite itself is not distributed with python. Only a python db api compliant wrapper is part of the python stdlib and as such it is completely independent of the sqlite build. In other words, if your sqlite build supports full text searching you can use it through the python sqlite wrapper (that is part of the stdlib) and if it doesn't then not. This is true for any sqlite...
