Is there a way that Python and C can have a shared definition for a binary data structure?
It could be nice if:
- struct or ctypes had a function that could parse a .h/.c/.cpp file
to auto-generate constructors or 2. a ctypes definition could be exported to a .h file.
So my question is - is there a way to do this in the std-lib or even pypi?
No, not in the stldlib. There is a tool which read .h files and converted them to ctypes code, but I'm not sure of its status.
BTW, please ask questions like this on python-list next time.
