Which actually isn't really helpful, as a DLL itself says nothing about what
language was used to create it - and sending the OP to e.g. ctypes makes no
sense at all in the face of C++.

Whereas the first link for "python c++" is Boost::Python, a C++-wrapper to
make C++-code accessible from Python.
