PyBuffer. Question on memory shared by C app and python.

P: n/a

I have an app that allocates memory. I have created a python buffer that
shares this memory. Example:

data = (double*) malloc(size*sizeof(double));
buffer = PyBuffer_FromReadWriteMemory(data, size*sizeof(double));

The app and python interpreter does lots of things they find usefull.

And one day, the app decides to free the memory:


How can the app tell python not to try to access memory no more?

Am I sure at this point that the app is the only one that has a ref on
my Object?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
