Contiguous memory blocks

I'm doing some native code stuff and want to pass continguos memory
blocks of data back and forth between Python and C, with the memory
blocks modifiable in both realms. What is a good way to do that?

As I understand it, "buffer interface" objects (e.g. strings or arrays)
won't work because memory is not guaranteed to be continguous.

No pun intended in the subject :) Is dynamically allocated memory contiguous in C++? In C? Deails would be appreciated. warm regards, Divya Rathore (remove underscores for email ID)
