Extending/Embedding Confusion

I am trying to learn how to extend and/or embed Python. I have looked
at the document "Extending and Embedding the Python Interpreter" and
also "Python/C API Reference Manual. In the examples shown in
"Extending. .." there are some things I ma not familiar with so I turn
to the index in the Reference Manual, but they are not listed. For
example, PyEval_CallObje ct and PyDict_GetAttrS tring. My question is
this: Is the documentation out of date or is the index not complete?
Where can I get information about these things?

Secondly, I am really struggling with understanding how to Extend/Embed
Python. The examples given in the documentation are not as helpful as
I would hope. Does anyone know of additional examples on the web that
will shed some light on this issue? I have tried Google, but haven't
yet been successful in finding additional examples that help.
Thanks,
Jeremy

Depending on what you are trying to do you might be better off to start by
using Pyrex, Boost::Python or Swig.

http://www.boost.org/libs/python/doc/
http://www.swig.org/

I accidentally sent this to webmaster@python.org, so this could be a duplicate if "webmaster" forwards it to this list. :{ Hi, there. Thanks for any help that can be offered. I've been working with Python for a year or more now, but only doing simple extending in C/C++. I'm now attempting some embedding and several questions have come to mind.

In the "Extending and Embedding" part of the Python documentation: section 5.4 "Extending Embedded Python" - it describes how to use a Python extension module from Python that is embedded in a C application. Is it safe to call Py_InitModule() more than once in the same application - in order to be able to use more than one extension module? -- Richard

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)
