Hi,
I need to call a C function from python which looks like this:

void func(void **buffer, int *szBuffer)
{
    //allocate memory to buffer
    *szBuffer = req_size;
    *buffer = malloc(req_size);
 
    //buffer filled
}


Then i must use the buffer in python. How can i achieve this. Please help!

The 'natural way' to do that would be wrapping your function in way Python may understand, i.e. writing a proper C extension for Python. See: "Extending Python with C or C++"[^].
