Python class method as an argument of a function in a C extension

Hi all,

I am trying to wrap some C code using SWIG (win32, mingw). I am new to
SWIG and to the Python/C API so what I am doing is looking at the
examples and trying to fit them to my needs, but I cannot find any
complete demo example of a C function taking as an argument a Python
function defined by the user.

What I am trying to do is to pass a class method as an argument of a
function defined in a C extension:

# file: runme.py

import myCExtensionMod ule

class MyClass:
def __init__(self):
self.myCounter = 0
self.myVar = 0
def myMethod(self, myArg):
self.myCounter += 1
return self.myVar + myArg
def runMe(self):
myCExtensionMod ule.aCFunction( self.myMethod, 10)

x = MyClass()
x.runMe()

# end of runme.py

Can anybody give me an hint (or some link) on how to define
'aCFunction' and how to call 'self.myMethod' in the C source code?

Thank you very much for any kind of help!

hi all, i'm relatively new to python. I find it a pretty interesting language but also somewhat limiting compared to lisp.

E.g., the multiple class inheritance is great, but there are no generic functions (at least that i...

I'm trying to understand the argument flags that are used in the method table of an extension module written in C. First let me ask this question about the method table.

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