PyImport_Import Module("sys")

7 New Member
I am new to this board and I am using Python 2.2.1 on Windows XP SP2. I am working on embedding some python functionality in a C++ win32 DLL, and I am having issues using the PyImport_ functions available in the python C API. More specifically I am trying to use Pyimport_Import Module() to import sys, and it doesn't work. I have also tried using PyString_FromSt ring() to convert the the string "sys" to a Python object to then use PyImport_Import (). Can't get it to work. The only way to properly import sys is to use PyRun_SimpleStr ing("import sys"). I think this a pretty standard question but I haven't found a definite answer yet. does the problem come from the fact that sys is a built-in module? What are the limitations on the PyImport_ functions with respect to the different types of module one could try to import? TIA.

I've never tried to do it that way. I import the low level dll into the high level (Python) module using the ctypes library. That way I get the benefits of both worlds: Low level C doing work that must be optimized or hidden and Python taking care of things like memory management and OS interface.

Hi, Can you please guide me for the following problem? The call to "PyImport_ImportModule("cStringIO");" is failing with an error of "undefined symbol: PyObject_SelfIter". Before importing this module, I am importing only the sys module. Py_SetProgramName("/usr/bin/python"); Py_Initialize(); char* argv = { "python","-v",""}; PySys_SetArgv(2,argv);

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.
