RFE: Python pmFetch needs to become polymorphic
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:55:30 EDT
Description of problem:
The below is from pcp2graphite.py but would be needed in other Python applications as well:
# Convert a python list of pmids (numbers) to a ctypes LP_c_uint (a C array of uints).
def convert_pmids_to_ctypes(self, pmids):
from ctypes import c_uint
pmidA = (c_uint * len(pmids))()
for i,p in enumerate(pmids):
pmidA[i] = c_uint(p)
pmid = self.context.pmLookupName(name)
# NB: we'd like to do: result = self.context.pmFetch(self.pmids)
# But: pmFetch takes ctypes array-of-uint's, not a python list. It needs to become polymorphic.
result = self.context.pmFetch(self.convert_pmids_to_ctypes(self.pmids))
