I tried to use MATLAB from python through the MATLAB COM server. I use
the following code to invoke the COM server:

App = win32com.client.dynamic.Dispatch('Matlab.Application')

Then, after that, I can execute MATLAB commands using 


However, I encountered problem when I tried to import/export data from/to
MATLAB using the GetFullMatrix and PutFullMatrix functions. I check the input
to these two functions. They require arguments of "Pointer SafeArray Real 8
(Flags=3)" type. I tried to use list or tuple data type in python to handle
them  but failed. 

Can anyone help me out by telling how I can solve this problem in python?
Should I write some C code to solve it? 

BTW, VB can handle this data type. 


Best regards,
