I apologize if needed ... but I didn't ask about «how to program
things using `ctypes.com` ». I asked here because you are the ones who
should know about modules in stdlib . That's why I thought that it was
not «very» OT

Thnx !

Yes, I've just tried that one, but the fact is that I'm experiencing a
problem with it (that I won't detail in here because this is not the
list to talk about such subjects , isn't it ? ... just learning fast
... :P ) and I thought I could switch to that one ...

Thnx very much for your reply !
