Thanks Travis, that at least gets me started
If I can borrow from Greg Landrums reply:
if testblock is my fortran common block,
the equivalent in C is
typedef struct {
float var1;
int var2;
} common1;
common1 testblock; /* a global block that exists for the entire
period of module use */
so if I have a testmodule.c file with:
typedef struct {
PyObject_HEAD
/* something is missing here */
} TestObject;
What do I have to put in the TestObject struct to be able to read and write
the var1 and var2 variables
directly in a python script with something along the lines of
self.testblock.var1=2.0 ?
Thanks again.
