Hi, Michiel

I thing "\x11\x22\x33" in python is not the {0x11, 0x22, 0x33} in C.
Since, a string in python is immutable, I can _not_ do something like:
 b[1] = "\x55".

And, how about char buf[200] in my original question?  The intension
is to allocate 200 undefined bytes in memory. Thanks.

Regards,
