Generating exceptions from C


I'm working on a python module written in C, and I'm trying to figure
out how to raise python
exceptions if a function fails. So far I've read
http://docs.python.org/ext/errors.html and
http://docs.python.org/api/exceptionHandling.html , but I've not fully
understood it.

I've managed to create the custom exception type using
PyErr_NewExcept ion(), and if I do
PyErr_SetString () the exception will get raised. Some questions:

1. PyErr_NewExcept ion() creates the exception _class_, not the instance
right ?

2. Is PyErr_SetString () the correct way to raise exceptions ?

3. Besides the error message I pass to PyErr_SetString (), I also want to
pass additional return
data together with the exception. But this should be attached to the
exception _instance_,
not the class, am I right ?

4. If I am supposed to attach it to the exception instance, how would I
do that ? I never have a
pointer to the exception instance, just the class.

Chapter 3: What are the most common Exceptions and what do they mean? As we saw in the last chapter, there isn't only the standard Exception, but you also get special exceptions like NullPointerException or ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException. All of these extend the basic class Exception. In general, you can sort Exceptions into two groups: Checked and unchecked Exceptions. Checked Exceptions are checked by the compiler at compilation time. Most...

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

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
