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_
      
    enum
    {
        PYLOOKATCAMERA_PITCH     = 1000
    }
      
    #endif

    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 c4d.dev 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.
