Cannot use Winpdb (or PyDev) to trace embedded Python script in

P: n/a
I am embedding Python in a MSVC++ (2005) application. The application
creates some environment and then launches a Python script that will
call some functions exported from the MSVC++ application.

I want to be able to debug the Python script by using a debug server,
like Winpdb (winpdb.org).

I use ActivePython 2.5.2.2, Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, and Winpdb
1.3.8.

When I launch a script like "e:>python test.py" everything is O'K and
I can use Winpdb to trace/debug.

When I run the same script from the MSVC++ application, there is
always a complain "ImportError: No module named _socket".

Here is the basic test script I use:
>>>
def Process( something ):
print "\n\nStarted debugging\n=================\n"
#pydevd.settrace()
import rpdb2; rpdb2.start_embedded_debugger("1")
print "\n\nStopped debugging\n=================\n"

if __name__ == '__main__':
Process( "test" )
<<<

In the MSVC++ application I tried many approaches, as suggested by
many people, and all of them work to launch the script, but none of
them works with Winpdb (or PyDev for Eclipse - same problem). Just for
completeness - here is one:
>>>
PyRun_SimpleString("import sys");
PyRun_SimpleString("import os");
PyRun_SimpleString( "fullpath = os.path.abspath(\"E:/Test.py\")" );
PyRun_SimpleString( "g = globals().copy()" );
PyRun_SimpleString( "g['__file__'] = fullpath");
PyRun_SimpleString( "execfile(fullpath, g) ");
<<<

If I use pdb (import pdb + pdb.runcall(something) ) everything works
fine, but I need the performance and convinience of Winpdb.

What am I doing wrong?

Your help is highly appreciated!

Best regards,
Chris

You seem to be having a problem with the import path of the embedded
interpreter. I suppose the embedded interpreter includes some modules
in a particular folder and _socket is not one of them. For the sake of
debugging try adding the c:\python25\lib path to the sys.path variable
of the interpreter before attempting to import rpdb2.

Does this work?

Unfortunately, not.

I did some experiments to check the sys.path hypothesis:

- In my MSVC++ application I did PyRun_SimpleString("import cgi"); -
it complained about missing _socket.

- Did PyRun_SimpleString("print sys.path") to get the sys.path as seen
from within the application environment (that does not find _socket)

- Did the same in "test.py" and ran ...>Python test.py to get the
sys.path for the environment that _does_ find _socket

- Compared the two - the working environment had two more paths:

C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\python25.zip
C:\\Python25\\lib\\plat-win

- Added the missing path to the embedded environment:

PyRun_SimpleString("import sys");
PyRun_SimpleString("import os");

PyRun_SimpleString("sys.path.append(\"C:\\WINDOWS\ \system32\
\python25.zip\")");
PyRun_SimpleString("sys.path.append(\"C:\\Python25 \\lib\\plat-win
\")");

PyRun_SimpleString("print sys.path");

PyRun_SimpleString("import cgi");

Not all paths that are in the working environment are present in the
embedded environment, but still there is a problem:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "C:\Python25\Lib\cgi.py", line 40, in <module>
import urllib
File "c:\Python25\lib\urllib.py", line 26, in <module>
import socket
File "c:\Python25\lib\socket.py", line 45, in <module>
import _socket
ImportError: No module named _socket

There is a typo:

"Not all paths that are in the working environment are present in the
embedded environment, but still there is a problem:"

should read

"Now all paths...."

Sorry!

Can you check another hypothesis?

I currently do not have a Python installation to verify this but if my
memory does not fail me there is a DLL library somewhere under c:
\python25 and _socket might be there as well. Copy any DLLs you find
there to the same folder as your embedded interpreter DLL and see if
the problem is resolved.
