[Python.NET] Setting PYTHONPATH from code

Hi Sharon,

What do you want to achieve with this? If you want to provide path for
loading your own modules you can change the sys.path value by e.g. running a
'initialization' script with

import sys
sys.path.insert(0, 'your/own/path')

You can build up the script above in C# by inserting the path you need and
then performing e.g. RunSimpleString(<script>) like

string script = "import sys\nsys.path.insert(0, '" + <variable_with_path> +
IntPtr pythonLock = AcquireLock();

Does this help?
