Creating Python wrapper for DLL

Tim
I have a DLL, and a C .h file that exports a bunch of functions from
the DLL. I would like to create a Python extension module for these
functions.

I have read the "Extending and Embedding" documentation in the Python
2.4 release. I understand how to extend C code for use in Python if I
have access to the C source code (I think). But...

Will I be able to create Python extensions for my DLL functions if I do
not have access to the DLL source code?

Hi- I've been searching the web for a while and I've been unable to find a way to access c data objects in python without using SWIG. I can do methods just fine but I can't access variables. It seems like PyModule_AddObject should work but it segfaults my program. There's a good chance I'm just using it wrong, or I should be using...

Hi, I was wondering what would be the most elegant way for creating a Python class wrapper for a command line utility, which takes three types of arguments: 1. options with values (--foo=bar) 2. boolean options (--squibble) 3. data lines (MUNGE:x:y:z:frob)

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...

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