Calling python method from C++

Hi All,

I am a newbie to Python programming. I am interfacing python program with c++ shared object library using swig and
facing a problem with callback methods.

C++ method : file1.h
class abc
void Initabc( int (*funptr) ( char * ) );

file1.cpp calls the assigned function in Initabc.

Python Program : a.py

import abc

msg = ' '
def notify( msg )
print msg
return 0

obj = abc.abc();
obj.Initabc( notify )

The python exits with the following error msg :

TypeError: in method 'abc_Initabc', arg2 of type 'int (*)(char *)'

Anybody can help me in this regard?
