How to stop a running embedded interpreter?


I have embedded Python in an C++ App.
The Python-Interpreter is running in its own
Thread (I'm using PThreads).

I use PyRun_SimpleStr ing to run Python-Code that the user entered
in an editorwindow.
I want the user to be able to stop the execution of
Python-Code (e.g. using a Cancel-Button).
Unfortunately I can't find a way to do this.

Of course, I can kill the Interpreter-Thread forcibly with
pthread_cancel( ) but the App will crash if I call any Python API-
Function afterwards.

I thought about starting 2 Threads in Python: One thread checks for a
stop condition (by calling a C-function that checks the Cancel-Button)
and the user-code runs in a second thread. The Problem with this
approach is that there seems to be no possibility for one Python-thread
to kill another.
I don't want the user to have to check fo a stop condition himself either.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I just want to ask php-community, are they running too fast with new versions. Why: 1) Its not so nice to load 4.2x and then come back couople of months later to find out that php 5 is out while you're still making yourself familiar with 4.2x. 2) Are webhosters happy to announce their clients "btw, we have installed new version, if your applications stop running, that maybe the reason, but figure out yourself"?

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,...
