Embedding Python in C/C++ using Python/C API

I've been researching how to embed python into C/C++. And, I learned how to write c/c++ code that, in threory, should do its job in embedding Python module into itself.
Here is what I have..

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. #include <python2.4/Python.h>
  2. void SomeStuff::someMethod  (void) {
  3.         std::cout << "ErrVisitor" << std::endl;
  5.         PyObject *pName, *pModule, *pDict, *pFunc;
  7.         Py_Initialize();
  8.         std::cout << "1" << std::endl;
  9.         pName = PyString_FromString ("mailSender");
  10.         std::cout << "2" << std::endl;
  11.         pModule = PyImport_Import (pName);
  12.         std::cout << "3" << std::endl;
  13.         if (PyModule_Check(pModule)) {
  14.                 std::cout << "Module" << std::endl;
  15.         } else {
  16.                 std::cout << "Not a Module" << std::endl;
  17.                 exit(2);
  18.         }
  19.         std::cout << "4" << std::endl;
  20.         pDict = PyModule_GetDict (pModule);
  21.         pFunc = PyDict_GetItemString(pDict, "send_mail");
  23.         if (PyCallable_Check(pFunc)) {
  24.                 PyObject_CallObject(pFunc, NULL);
  25.         } else {
  26.                 std::cout << "Not Callable" << std::endl;
  27.                 PyErr_Print ();
  28.         }
  29. Py_DECREF (pModule);
  30.         Py_DECREF (pName);
  32.         Py_Finalize();
  33. }
with the following python code: mailSender.py

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. import smtplib
  2. import os
  3. from email.MIMEMultipart import MIMEMultipart
  4. from email.MIMEBase import MIMEBase
  5. from email.MIMEText import MIMEText
  6. from email.Utils import COMMASPACE, formatdate
  7. from email import Encoders
  9. def send_mail ():
  10.     send_from = "jin@sohovfx.com";
  11.     send_to = []
  12.     send_to.append ("jin@sohovfx.com")
  13.     subject = "hihihi"
  14.     text = "hihihihihi"
  15.     files = [];
  16.     files.append ('/home/jin/Workspace/scabs/old_split.py');
  17.     server = "smtp.beanfield.com"
  19.     assert type(send_to)==list
  20.     assert type(files)==list
  22.     msg = MIMEMultipart()
  23.     msg['From'] = send_from
  24.     msg['To'] = COMMASPACE.join(send_to)
  25.     msg['Date'] = formatdate(localtime=True)
  26.     msg['Subject'] = subject
  28.     msg.attach( MIMEText(text) )
  30.     for file in files:
  31.         part = MIMEBase('application', "octet-stream")
  32.         part.set_payload( open(file,"rb").read() )
  33.         Encoders.encode_base64(part)
  34.         part.add_header('Content-Disposition', 'attachment; filename="%s"' % os.path.basename(file))
  35.         msg.attach(part)
  37.     smtp = smtplib.SMTP(server)
  38.     smtp.sendmail(send_from, send_to, msg.as_string())
  39.     smtp.close()
Both Codes are in the same directory, and I use
"g++ SomeCode.h SomeCode.cc -lpython2.4"
to compile my code...

I run with ./a.out,
and the output is the following:

Segmentation fault

I think the module didnt get imported? How do I make sure that the module DOES get imported? Do I need to do something else at the time of compilation to link these two codes?
Why am I getting a Seg fault?

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated..

Thank you.
