ive recently trying to add a scripting system to a game i am making..
anyway, ive started to learn python and am trying to figure out how to
embed it in my game. i have gotten a C++ function to work from inside
C++ but called from python via PyRun_SimpleString(),,, i can send
commands directly to the intepreter with that function, but im having
a problem
 with PyRun_SimpleFile(). im trying to execute a python script with
this function, but its crashing when it gets to this line:


i cant figure out what im doing wrong. here is the source. any help is
greatly appreciated!!

#include <boost/python.hpp>
#include <iostream>
#include <stdio.h>

using namespace std;
using namespace boost::python;

#ifdef _WIN32
#pragma comment(lib,"boost_python.lib");

int main()

   FILE *fp = NULL;
   fp = fopen("test.py", "r");
   if(fp == NULL)
	  return 1;



   return 0;

thanks for any help! also, i tried not opening the file myself, and
just sending PR_SF() a NULL FILE*... it didnt crash! instead, in the
console it said there was a syntax error and printed out some garbage
characters... i dont think theres a syntax error, "text.py" entire
file just says print "hello world"

thanks again!
