I'm starting on a project to embed CPython into a .NET application for scripting. The application currently uses IronPython, which is falling behind. Our scripting needs are fairly extensive and I'm challenged by the limited information I find available. First questions are about some finer grain control over
First, my application loads a number of scripts. I currently use PythonEngine.ModuleFromString() and this works but I would like finer control.
1. Set the filename in call to Py_CompileString(). Current this is set to "none"
2. Set globals for module before executing it. I put certain values in the scripts global space for convenience.
PythonEngine.Compile() will compile the code but then I don't see any way to execute the code. Runtime.PyImport_ExecCodeModule(name, c); is not public.
Is there a way to do this with the current API?
If I fork the GIT repo, make changes that I need, are they likely to be incorporated?
