Hi all, I want to make python call some C functions, process them and
Ok, I got all the wrapper functions and everything setup right. Here
is my problem. What I need to do is to return a tuple from C to
To go about doing this, I first create a tuple object in C doing the
toRet = PyTuple_New(num_addr);
then, in a for loop, i assign values to the tuple as follows:
for ( i = 0; i < num_addr; i++ )
PyTuple_SET_ITEM(toRet, i, (PyObject*)dat[i] );
(dat is declared as follows: unsigned int* dat; )
then, i say return toRet at the end of my C function.
when I try to print the tuple in python, it says the memory address
0x.... could not be written, and I can see a part of the tuple
printout, which is as follows:
then i get my error.
can someone please help me with this?
thanks a lot!
