[PyKDE] Using SIP to call Python from C++

Thanks for the detailed response!

I believe I do need to call SIP (maybe just Python)
from C++.  I have an existing C++ application that I'm
trying to add Python plotting capabilities to.  I need
to spawn these plot utilities ... telling them where
to get the plot data ... then closing them (with
resource cleanup) when done.  Make sense?

The Python/C API seems very tedious to code to. 
Perhaps the book you recommended will be a great
start.  I have done it.  But, getting the Python
function, setting the arguments, and freeing the
allocated resources was very, very difficult (IMHO).

Examples ... do you recommend the WIKI as a place to
start learning?  As you might know, it's a little
overwhelming.  I particularly appreciated the
Boost.Python tutorial.  Does SIP have one of this

Much Thanks!!!
