PyArg_Parse vs PyArg_ParseTuple

Hello,

I'm new to Python, and I've searched the archives for more info but can't 
seem to find the info I need.  I am having trouble using PyArg_ParseTuple(). 
  Here is the python code I'm embedding:

# TestModule.py
def NumberFunction(x):
	return x+1

As you see, it's not too complex.  :-)  This is just a proof of concept I'm 
working on to prove it can be done.

Here is the code I'm trying to embed it in.  Note: this is C++, does that 
make a difference in this case?

// TestEmbed.cpp
#include <stdio.h>
#include <Python.h>

void main(void)
{
	long val = 7;
	PyObject *pmod, *pfunc, *pargs, *pstr;

	PyInitialize();
	printf( "Processing data: %ld\n", val );

	pmod = PyImport_ImportModule( "TestModule" );
	pfunc = PyObject_GetAttrString( pmod, "NumberFunction" );

	pargs = Py_BuildValue( "(l)", val );
	pstr = PyEval_CallObject( pfunc, pargs );

	// *** This code works ***
	PyArg_Parse( pstr, "l", &val );

	// *** This code does NOT work ***
	//PyArg_ParseTuple( pstr, "l", &val );

	printf( "Val returned was %d\n", val );
}


If I use the ParseTuple version, the code appears to run fine, but val is 
unchanged.  I've tried using "(l)" as the string but I'm grasping at straws 
here.

I read in the documentatian that PyArg_Parse() is deprecated, so I would 
like to get this working correctly.

Thank you!

Oh, this is Python 2.1.1 on Windows 2000.  (Not ActivePython.)
