Yes, it is possible. Most likely, you will have to embed a Python
interpreter in your app. Have a look at the Extending&Embedding section of
the Python manual.

As an alternative, you can use your C++ code as an extension of Python (a
module). Again, have a look at the Extending&Embedding section of the
Python manual.

BTW: are you aware of the existence of PyGTK and wxPython?
