Bug #111520, was updated on 2000-Aug-09 14:22
Here is a current snapshot of the bug.

Project: Python
Category: Documentation
Status: Closed
Resolution: Fixed
Bug Group: None
Priority: 5
Summary: Some "Very High Level" functions aren't

Details: The so-called "Very High Level" functions in the Python C API that take FILE * arguments will not work in a multi-compiler environment; each compiler's notion of a struct FILE will be different.  From an implementation standpoint these are very _low_ level functions.

The Python documentation for these functions, and the "Extending and embedding" documentation, should make note of this potential problem.

BTW, there are situations in which a compiler other than the compiler used to compile Python will be used.  Please don't try to make this bug go away by requiring the same compiler be used as was used to compile Python.
