Getting exceptions back from calls to embedded python

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have an application that is using embedded python to offer some
scripting ability. An API is exposed via SWIG, and I am accessing that
API from my embedded python interpreter.

Scripts are present as separate files, and I'm invoking them at present
using the following:

iserr = PyRun_AnyFileEx(f,name,1);

if(iserr){
/* tell the user */
return 1;
}else{
/* all good */
return 0;
}

My question is, if I want to be able to get information about
exceptions that have occurred here (perhaps a syntax error, or an
import error, or perhaps a runtime error), what would be the easiest
way to do this now?

I understand that I'm currently using the 'very high level interface'
for python embedding. What's the easiest next step down that will allow
me to catch exceptions and report them?

Would appreciate any thoughts.

Cheers
JP

I can't verify it right now, but I think that the PyRun_File* family
would let you call PyErr_Occurred and related functions afterwards.
