[C++-sig] PyErr_Print()

Hi All

I'm new to Boost.Python as of yesterday, but I have successfully 
integrated it into a C++ applciation. However, this has left me with a 
couple of questions:

1. Is there a version of PyErr_Print() that I can use to copy the 
exception message to a std::string (so I can throw my own exception) 
instead of std::err?

2. I retrieve the output from my python scripts in the following way:

std::string sal = extract<char*>( main_namespace["result"] );

Is this the best way? I'm concerned that it may leak?



Please note the change of email address!
