C API Documentation

The following sections cover the internal C API of Pygame2. The C API is useful for implementing your own C extension or if you require some Python to C interoperatibility.

Notes on Reading

All methods and functions covered by this C API usually check their arguments for the correct value range, types and so on. If they fail due to wrong arguments or an internal error, they will either set an exception using:


or escalate the exception, if it was set in another place.

Those methods, which do not set an exception on failure or do not check their arguments, are clearly marked as such.
