Passing FILE * types using ctypes

Hello, I'm using ctypes to wrap a library i wrote. I am trying to pass
it a FILE *pointer, how do i open a file in Python and convert it to a
FILE *pointer. Or do i have to call the C library using ctypes first,
get the pointer and then pass it to my function.

Also, is there any automated way to convert c struct and enum
definitions to ctypes data types.
