[Gc] Python and collected C libraries?
Thu, 27 Nov 2003 09:49:51 +0000
We have developed an ab initio conformational sampling program for
proteins over the last several years using the Boehm collector. We are
considering a transition from a pure C++ program to a small C++ engine
linked into python to ease development of extensions to the system.
Has anyone tried to import a C++ library using the Boehm collector into
a GC language before? For instance, have GC libraries been hooked into
Java, Scheme, or Lisp? Are there obvious pitfalls? Or will everything
just work fine? I am concerned that the Boehm collector will begin
manipulating the python C interpreter's data structures and all h*ll
will break loose.
Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.
