Thank you very much for sharing your oPython external.
As a Python newbie, I am having a bit of a problem getting it to run, though.
I am trying to run a simple test.py file with the following contents:
and the following Omnis code:
Do oPy3Lib.$runfile("/Volumes/Free/test.py","__main__") Returns #S1
but #S1 remains empty.
I am probably making some rookie mistake.
Is this how the $runfile function is supposed to work?
Does it return anything that is printed?
And on a related note, is it possible to specify arguments (sys.argv value) with the $runfile function?

(When your python multi-threaded code is primarily IO bound or effectively wrapping a c-library that itself is benefitting from multiple cores then things are different of course).
