I am trying to port an image processing tool into a python extension. I have the code running successfully in a standalone Symbian C++ application. For the standalone application I was able to specify a larger heap size using the EPOCHEAPSIZE instructon in the .mmp file. I tried the same in the .mmp file of the extension, but it does not seem to have any effect.
Is the heap size in python extensions limited to the heap size of the python executable? So would I have to recompile python?
Apologies in advance if it's a naive question, as I have not very clear understanding of DLLs (which is what a python extension is).
I see in this other thread that it is possible to go around the heap limit for python scripts, but would this be the way to go for me?
