Dear developers,

i tried the simplest possible embedding described in


using python3.

the example code does not compile (from c++) with error:
/home/riccardo/scratch/kratospy3/embedded_python/krun_main.cpp: In function
‘int main(int, char**)’:
/home/riccardo/scratch/kratospy3/embedded_python/krun_main.cpp:8:28: error:
cannot convert ‘char*’ to ‘wchar_t*’ for argument ‘1’ to ‘void
   Py_SetProgramName(argv[0]);  /* optional but recommended */

what is the correct version for this?

if i define the main with wchar_t instead of char i get a warning...

thank you in advance
