hi all,
i have loaded a dll with ctypes.cdll and i want to get thta dll's parameters and method
like when you write:
<'the dll handle'>.
and just after you put the dot a list appears to show you the methods
or like when you get a dir() from a class or like that
how to find out the dll's unctions and methods and ....???

by the way when i get dir() from the handle of cypes.cdll... i get this:
>>> from ctypes import *
>>> a=cdll.LoadLibrary('bssdk.dll')
>>> dir(a)
