I recommend you read the "extending and embedding" tutorial:

http://www.python.org/doc/current/ext/ext.html
http://www.python.org/doc/current/api/api.html

You'll have to write an extension module. Since you will need to
compile that with the C++ compiler, please make sure to use extern "C"
on the module init function.

Martin
