Res.h files are not read by Python?

I always assumed that .h files are not read by python, but looking at the example Py-LookAtCamera I think i am wrong!
The example uses c4d in front of the variable, see below, without defining it.

How is it done?

data.SetBool(c4d.PYLOOKATCAMERA_PITCH, True)

Here the .h file of the example

#ifndef _Tpylookatcamera_H_
#define _Tpylookatcamera_H_

They are, sort of, but its buggy/laggy in that it often won't update when
you add or remove symbols and you have to delete the symbolcache
file to force a reload.

You could bring the symbols into your Python Plugin by hand. I got
tired of this and I'm always using my script to extract the
symbols and bring them into a format you can easily read/import from
or paste into your Python plugin. It's not only reliable  but also gives you
some extra shortcuts for handling with resorce symbol and files. The
Readme should get you started.
