embedding Python and changing stdin, stdout and stderr

Discussion in 'Python' started by Vincent Touquet, Sep 2, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    In a project where I have embedded Python in a C++ application, I have
    the need to replace what Python considers to be stdin, stdout and/or

    In sysmodule.c in the Python sources, I find the following lines of

    sysin = PyFile_FromFile(stdin, "<stdin>", "r", NULL);
    PyDict_SetItemString(sysdict, "stdin", sysin);

    Where stdin is the C constant FILE pointer and sysin is a PyObject

    Would it be feasible for me to provide my own PyFile to replace sysin
    in sysdict ? It would seem to me that it would be sufficient to
    provide the Python interpreter with a different standard in/out/err
    than the one provide by the OS (through C).

    best regards,
