I don't know.  I've been a C programmer for almost exactly 20 years: Neither 
"extern" nor function prototypes are necessary in Python.

"import" and "#include" do not have exactly the same meaning but they
accomplish more or less the same result.  

What is it you're trying to do that requires these C/C++ features?
