Extending & Embedding Python

Hi all! I've a problem with a C++ class that has to be included in a
python application. One way to do it is Extending and Embedding the
Python Interpreter
Now i have 2 questions
1) Is there a one-file version of this tutorial?
2) Is there anyone that can help me with this problem? The class is
attached.

Thanks all.
Marco

i'm not sure what tutorial you mean. are you talking about the
Extending and Embedding section of the python manual?

http://docs.python.org/ext/ext.html

i haven't read your code, but you might want to take a look at SWIG:

http://www.swig.org/

Yes, this section. Is there in one-file version? (pdf, ps, dvi, all in
1 html, etc...)

About SWIG:
This program has a lot of commands...
In your opinion what is the best settings for my use?
Thanks...
