I hope I'm writing to the right place. 
In case I'm out of place can you please refer to the right direction.
I have a question about the correct way to use PyArg_Parse API function.
I'm writing a C module to be called from python code  (ver 2.3.4)  
In one of the function I have to cast the parameter into char *
It looks like this:
PyObject* myfunc (PyObject *self, PyObject *args)
 char * myparam;
 if (!PyArg_Parse(args, "(s)", &myparam)){
I have a few questions:
1. is this the correct way to cast PyObject  into char* 
    I have tried the PyArg_ParseTuple but for some reason didn't succeed.
2. Is the pointer above (&myparam) is alocated by this call? ( I guess it is since the adress changed before and after the call)
3. Who is releasing this memory ?
I tried looking into the code , and will continue to.
I hope you'll be able to help me.
thanks anyway.
