I’m looking into the possibility of passing the <gr_block gr uhd usrp
source (0)> object from Python into a C++ out of tree module. In my
module, I have:
I get a TypeError when I instantiate the block. It seems like the object
created in Python is not a proxy for the sptr, and I can’t figure out
quite how to get access to the sptr from Python.
I’ve tried both of the alternatives to passing back in the sptr: I’ve
tried sending commands to the USRP via message passing interface, but
only freq and gain are implemented. At the very least I need the full
I’ve also tried making that call with fevall_dd, but it’s a blocking
call and it’s too slow for my application. I could maybe spawn that call
in its own thread so it doesn’t block, but I think passing the shared
pointer back is the cleaner and more correct solution.
So, how hard is this going to be? SWIG 2.0 supports boost’s shared
pointer. I’m wondering if it’d just be a few extra lines in
GR_SWIG_BLOCK_MAGIC2 to expose it, or am I kidding myself?
Thanks in advance,
