Subject Converting Python seqence to arrow Array via C++ API
Date Tue, 04 Jun 2019 15:17:59 GMT
I'm attempting to investigate how Arrow converts a python list into an
equivalent arrow::Array using the C++ API below.


#include <memory>
#include <Python.h>
#include <string>
#include <iostream>
#include <arrow/memory_pool.h>
#include <arrow/python/python_to_arrow.h>

PyObject* clist(void)
    PyObject* lst = PyList_New(0);
    PyList_Append(lst, PyLong_FromLong(1));
    PyList_Append(lst, PyLong_FromLong(2));
    PyList_Append(lst, PyLong_FromLong(5));

    return lst;

int main()

    PyObject* list = clist();

    std::shared_ptr<arrow::ChunkedArray> carr;

    arrow::py::PyConversionOptions ops;
    ops.from_pandas = false;
    ops.pool = arrow::default_memory_pool();
    ConvertPySequence(list, ops, &carr);



The file compiles fine, however I get a segmentation fault at
arrow/cpp/src/arrow/python/iterators.h line 44 on PyCheck_Array.

The error in my debugger is EXC_BAD_ACCESS, however when I interrogate it
in the debug console it appears to be there in memory:

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm compiling using clang 4.0.1 on OSX // Python 3.7.3 // Arrow
0.14.0-SNAPSHOT which I've built locally using conda.
