I don't know anything about Delphi; it may use a different calling
convention than C (unlikely). If that's the case, however, you're out of
luck unless you can find a Delphi-C or Delphi-Python interface module.
Assuming it uses the C calling convention, you can possibly use the dl
dl is unfortunately limited to passing integers, strings, and NULL, and to
returning integers, so it's likely not to be useful for complex data
