Hope this is the right mailing list, please complain if not ;)
I'm currently experimenting with the integration of Python (2.6) scripts
into my application, and am using the following script for testing:
*import* threading, time
t = threading.Thread(target = handler)
And in C++, it's this code:
*if*(!Py_IsInitialized()) *throw* std::exception();
PyObject *module = PyImport_AddModule("__main__");
PyObject *dict = PyModule_GetDict(module);
strcpy(script, "import threading, time\n"
"t = threading.Thread(target = handler)\n"
PyObject *obj = PyRun_String(script, Py_file_input, dict, dict);
When executing, the output is
as opposed to the expected
It seems to me that when the main execution path (after t.start())
finishes, the other thread (called t) is canceled?! Adding t.join() to
the end of the script gives the expected output, but isn't it possible
to let PyRun_xxx wait for all remaining threads to end? I know the
Python interpreter does this, but I didn't get much information from its
source code (it seems to run scripts with the runpy module).
Everyone was so helpful with my last question, I think I'll ask another.
I have an app that uses the Python/C api. It loads a few scripts, calls a few functions, and everything works fine. That is, until the app exits and calls Py_Finalize. Then the following error appears: (GetName is a function in one of the scripts)
Exception AttributeError: "'module' object has no attribute 'GetName'" in 'garbage collection' ignored
Fatal Python error: unexpected exception during garbage collection
Then the app crashes. Im using Python 3.1 on Windows if that helps. Any advice would be appreciated.

There are a few ways to set this path from C before starting python
setenv("PYTHONHOME", somepath, 1);
Heres a function that blender uses to setup python3.1's path, there
are a few blender functions here but should still be useful.
the #if0's part works too but I preferred to set the home folder directly.
/* must be called before Py_Initialize */
char *py_path_bundle= BLI_gethome_folder("python", BLI_GETHOME_ALL);
/* set the environment path */
printf("found bundled python: %s\n", py_path_bundle);
static wchar_t py_path_bundle_wchar[FILE_MAXDIR];
mbstowcs(py_path_bundle_wchar, py_path_bundle, FILE_MAXDIR);

Im kind of new to the Python/C api and I had a couple q's about the interpreter.
1. If i statically link the libpython31.a library to my app are there any other files i need to include for the end users? Im using Windows, btw.
2. How do you get the interpreter output from the console when you are running within a gui environment? Can it be redirected?
