the main article: Embedding Python in Another Applicationadditional article that shows peculiarities of multithreading, sockets and shared memory: Embedding Python in C/C++ (Part1, Part2)Cython (or Pyrex) can be used to reduce handwritten code for Python interoperability: A quick Cython introduction If you have doubts about Python size, there are some minimal implementations: see Embedded Python article. Let me quote tinypy:
