Operating System Utilities¶

PyObject *PyOS_FSPath(PyObject *path)
Return value: New reference. Part of the Stable ABI since version 3.6.

Return the file system representation for path. If the object is a str or bytes object, then its reference count is incremented. If the object implements the os.PathLike interface, then __fspath__() is returned as long as it is a str or bytes object. Otherwise TypeError is raised and NULL is returned.

Nouveau dans la version 3.6.

int Py_FdIsInteractive(FILE *fp, const char *filename)

Return true (nonzero) if the standard I/O file fp with name filename is deemed interactive. This is the case for files for which isatty(fileno(fp)) is true. If the global flag Py_InteractiveFlag is true, this function also returns true if the filename pointer is NULL or if the name is equal to one of the strings '<stdin>' or '???'.

void PyOS_BeforeFork()
Part of the Stable ABI on platforms with fork() since version 3.7.

Function to prepare some internal state before a process fork. This should be called before calling fork() or any similar function that clones the current process. Only available on systems where fork() is defined.

Avertissement

The C fork() call should only be made from the "main" thread (of the "main" interpreter). The same is true for PyOS_BeforeFork().

Nouveau dans la version 3.7.

void PyOS_AfterFork_Parent()
Part of the Stable ABI on platforms with fork() since version 3.7.

Function to update some internal state after a process fork. This should be called from the parent process after calling fork() or any similar function that clones the current process, regardless of whether process cloning was successful. Only available on systems where fork() is defined.

Avertissement

The C fork() call should only be made from the "main" thread (of the "main" interpreter). The same is true for PyOS_AfterFork_Parent().

Nouveau dans la version 3.7.

void PyOS_AfterFork_Child()
Part of the Stable ABI on platforms with fork() since version 3.7.

Function to update internal interpreter state after a process fork. This must be called from the child process after calling fork(), or any similar function that clones the current process, if there is any chance the process will call back into the Python interpreter. Only available on systems where fork() is defined.

Avertissement

The C fork() call should only be made from the "main" thread (of the "main" interpreter). The same is true for PyOS_AfterFork_Child().

Nouveau dans la version 3.7.

void PyOS_AfterFork()
Part of the Stable ABI on platforms with fork().

Function to update some internal state after a process fork; this should be called in the new process if the Python interpreter will continue to be used. If a new executable is loaded into the new process, this function does not need to be called.

Obsolète depuis la version 3.7: This function is superseded by PyOS_AfterFork_Child().

int PyOS_CheckStack()
Part of the Stable ABI on platforms with USE_STACKCHECK since version 3.7.

Return true when the interpreter runs out of stack space. This is a reliable check, but is only available when USE_STACKCHECK is defined (currently on Windows using the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler). USE_STACKCHECK will be defined automatically; you should never change the definition in your own code.

PyOS_sighandler_t PyOS_getsig(int i)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Return the current signal handler for signal i. This is a thin wrapper around either sigaction() or signal(). Do not call those functions directly! PyOS_sighandler_t is a typedef alias for void (*)(int).

PyOS_sighandler_t PyOS_setsig(int i, PyOS_sighandler_t h)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Set the signal handler for signal i to be h; return the old signal handler. This is a thin wrapper around either sigaction() or signal(). Do not call those functions directly! PyOS_sighandler_t is a typedef alias for void (*)(int).

wchar_t *Py_DecodeLocale(const char *arg, size_t *size)
Part of the Stable ABI since version 3.7.

Avertissement

This function should not be called directly: use the PyConfig API with the PyConfig_SetBytesString() function which ensures that Python is preinitialized.

This function must not be called before Python is preinitialized and so that the LC_CTYPE locale is properly configured: see the Py_PreInitialize() function.

Decode a byte string from the filesystem encoding and error handler. If the error handler is surrogateescape error handler, undecodable bytes are decoded as characters in range U+DC80..U+DCFF; and if a byte sequence can be decoded as a surrogate character, the bytes are escaped using the surrogateescape error handler instead of decoding them.

Return a pointer to a newly allocated wide character string, use PyMem_RawFree() to free the memory. If size is not NULL, write the number of wide characters excluding the null character into *size

Return NULL on decoding error or memory allocation error. If size is not NULL, *size is set to (size_t)-1 on memory error or set to (size_t)-2 on decoding error.

The filesystem encoding and error handler are selected by PyConfig_Read(): see filesystem_encoding and filesystem_errors members of PyConfig.

Decoding errors should never happen, unless there is a bug in the C library.

Use the Py_EncodeLocale() function to encode the character string back to a byte string.

Nouveau dans la version 3.5.

Modifié dans la version 3.7: The function now uses the UTF-8 encoding in the Python UTF-8 Mode.

Modifié dans la version 3.8: The function now uses the UTF-8 encoding on Windows if Py_LegacyWindowsFSEncodingFlag is zero;

char *Py_EncodeLocale(const wchar_t *text, size_t *error_pos)
Part of the Stable ABI since version 3.7.

Encode a wide character string to the filesystem encoding and error handler. If the error handler is surrogateescape error handler, surrogate characters in the range U+DC80..U+DCFF are converted to bytes 0x80..0xFF.

Return a pointer to a newly allocated byte string, use PyMem_Free() to free the memory. Return NULL on encoding error or memory allocation error.

If error_pos is not NULL, *error_pos is set to (size_t)-1 on success, or set to the index of the invalid character on encoding error.

The filesystem encoding and error handler are selected by PyConfig_Read(): see filesystem_encoding and filesystem_errors members of PyConfig.

Use the Py_DecodeLocale() function to decode the bytes string back to a wide character string.

Avertissement

This function must not be called before Python is preinitialized and so that the LC_CTYPE locale is properly configured: see the Py_PreInitialize() function.

System Functions¶

These are utility functions that make functionality from the sys module accessible to C code. They all work with the current interpreter thread's sys module's dict, which is contained in the internal thread state structure.

PyObject *PySys_GetObject(const char *name)
Return value: Borrowed reference. Part of the Stable ABI.

Return the object name from the sys module or NULL if it does not exist, without setting an exception.

int PySys_SetObject(const char *name, PyObject *v)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Set name in the sys module to v unless v is NULL, in which case name is deleted from the sys module. Returns 0 on success, -1 on error.

void PySys_ResetWarnOptions()
Part of the Stable ABI.

Reset sys.warnoptions to an empty list. This function may be called prior to Py_Initialize().

void PySys_AddWarnOption(const wchar_t *s)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Append s to sys.warnoptions. This function must be called prior to Py_Initialize() in order to affect the warnings filter list.

void PySys_AddWarnOptionUnicode(PyObject *unicode)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Append unicode to sys.warnoptions.

Note: this function is not currently usable from outside the CPython implementation, as it must be called prior to the implicit import of warnings in Py_Initialize() to be effective, but can't be called until enough of the runtime has been initialized to permit the creation of Unicode objects.

void PySys_SetPath(const wchar_t *path)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Set sys.path to a list object of paths found in path which should be a list of paths separated with the platform's search path delimiter (: on Unix, ; on Windows).

void PySys_WriteStdout(const char *format, ...)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Write the output string described by format to sys.stdout. No exceptions are raised, even if truncation occurs (see below).

format should limit the total size of the formatted output string to 1000 bytes or less -- after 1000 bytes, the output string is truncated. In particular, this means that no unrestricted "%s" formats should occur; these should be limited using "%.<N>s" where <N> is a decimal number calculated so that <N> plus the maximum size of other formatted text does not exceed 1000 bytes. Also watch out for "%f", which can print hundreds of digits for very large numbers.

If a problem occurs, or sys.stdout is unset, the formatted message is written to the real (C level) stdout.

void PySys_WriteStderr(const char *format, ...)
Part of the Stable ABI.

As PySys_WriteStdout(), but write to sys.stderr or stderr instead.

void PySys_FormatStdout(const char *format, ...)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Function similar to PySys_WriteStdout() but format the message using PyUnicode_FromFormatV() and don't truncate the message to an arbitrary length.

Nouveau dans la version 3.2.

void PySys_FormatStderr(const char *format, ...)
Part of the Stable ABI.

As PySys_FormatStdout(), but write to sys.stderr or stderr instead.

Nouveau dans la version 3.2.

void PySys_AddXOption(const wchar_t *s)
Part of the Stable ABI since version 3.7.

Parse s as a set of -X options and add them to the current options mapping as returned by PySys_GetXOptions(). This function may be called prior to Py_Initialize().

Nouveau dans la version 3.2.

PyObject *PySys_GetXOptions()
Return value: Borrowed reference. Part of the Stable ABI since version 3.7.

Return the current dictionary of -X options, similarly to sys._xoptions. On error, NULL is returned and an exception is set.

Nouveau dans la version 3.2.

int PySys_Audit(const char *event, const char *format, ...)

Raise an auditing event with any active hooks. Return zero for success and non-zero with an exception set on failure.

If any hooks have been added, format and other arguments will be used to construct a tuple to pass. Apart from N, the same format characters as used in Py_BuildValue() are available. If the built value is not a tuple, it will be added into a single-element tuple. (The N format option consumes a reference, but since there is no way to know whether arguments to this function will be consumed, using it may cause reference leaks.)

Note that # format characters should always be treated as Py_ssize_t, regardless of whether PY_SSIZE_T_CLEAN was defined.

sys.audit() performs the same function from Python code.

Nouveau dans la version 3.8.

Modifié dans la version 3.8.2: Require Py_ssize_t for # format characters. Previously, an unavoidable deprecation warning was raised.

int PySys_AddAuditHook(Py_AuditHookFunction hook, void *userData)

Append the callable hook to the list of active auditing hooks. Return zero on success and non-zero on failure. If the runtime has been initialized, also set an error on failure. Hooks added through this API are called for all interpreters created by the runtime.

The userData pointer is passed into the hook function. Since hook functions may be called from different runtimes, this pointer should not refer directly to Python state.

This function is safe to call before Py_Initialize(). When called after runtime initialization, existing audit hooks are notified and may silently abort the operation by raising an error subclassed from Exception (other errors will not be silenced).

The hook function is of type int (*)(const char *event, PyObject *args, void *userData), where args is guaranteed to be a PyTupleObject. The hook function is always called with the GIL held by the Python interpreter that raised the event.

See PEP 578 for a detailed description of auditing. Functions in the runtime and standard library that raise events are listed in the audit events table. Details are in each function's documentation.

Nouveau dans la version 3.8.

Process Control¶

void Py_FatalError(const char *message)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Print a fatal error message and kill the process. No cleanup is performed. This function should only be invoked when a condition is detected that would make it dangerous to continue using the Python interpreter; e.g., when the object administration appears to be corrupted. On Unix, the standard C library function abort() is called which will attempt to produce a core file.

The Py_FatalError() function is replaced with a macro which logs automatically the name of the current function, unless the Py_LIMITED_API macro is defined.

Modifié dans la version 3.9: Log the function name automatically.

void Py_Exit(int status)
Part of the Stable ABI.

Exit the current process. This calls Py_FinalizeEx() and then calls the standard C library function exit(status). If Py_FinalizeEx() indicates an error, the exit status is set to 120.

Modifié dans la version 3.6: Errors from finalization no longer ignored.

int Py_AtExit(void (*func)())
Part of the Stable ABI.

Register a cleanup function to be called by Py_FinalizeEx(). The cleanup function will be called with no arguments and should return no value. At most 32 cleanup functions can be registered. When the registration is successful, Py_AtExit() returns 0; on failure, it returns -1. The cleanup function registered last is called first. Each cleanup function will be called at most once. Since Python's internal finalization will have completed before the cleanup function, no Python APIs should be called by func.
