I''m having a lot of trouble finding a short and simple turorial or document on how to comunicate a python script with a c/c++ program. I need to call python functions whithin C and vice-versa. It would be nice too if i could use Python objects in C++ and vice-versa. I would appreciate any help (URLs, etc..)

If Python has a CORBA library, you can use that. The PortableServer allows communication between different vendor implementations and languages.

TAO (www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt/TAO.html) is a good C++ library for CORBA.

I know Java has a CORBA library, and I've used it to link C++ with Java programs.

EDIT: Although it's not exactly "short and simple" to learn/use...

Thanks for the replies.
I downloaded boost and i''m currently reading the documentation.

Are there other options?

I was looking for a smaller library to start with. A library that will just let me call a python function whithin C.

Something like the "libtcl" but with python.
