I've got an mfc that both extends and embeds python. Basically the user can run a python script from inside that app that usses various C++ objects in the app (exposed through the damn-that's-cool Boost.Python library). The python script actually runs in a seperate thread within the app. My problem is that I want a way for the user to stop the script execution. So far nothing I've found on the web works (i.e. PyErr_SetInterrupt()). Anyone have any ideas?

Define "stop script execution". That could mean suspend the thread until something else triggers it; bring down the entire python interpreter; yield control from the current executing script and so on.

sorry should've been clearer, I want to terminate the interpreter without killing the application it's embedded in.
