I'm embeding python in a WinNT application. This application can run
a python script. Before executing a python script, the application
calls the Py_Initialize function and executes the script. After the
script execution, the application calls the Py_Finalyze function. I
notice that the application use more memory than before the script
execution, I suppose that the Py_Finalyze function didn't not cleanup
the python interpreter completely. If I try to execute another script,
an error happens!
If I call Py_Initialize and Py_Finalyze only 1 time, everything works
correctly. The problem is that my application use more memory after
each script execution.
I tried to call Py_NewInterpreter() function before executing a
script and the Py_EndInterpreter() at the end of each script but the
memory usage still grow rapidly.
What should I do to keep the memory usage low? My application is
supposed to be able to run continuously without restart.
Thanks in advance
