I am trying to use roscpp_init and rospy.init in the same python program but get errors when I do. if I try to use the rospy interface I get duplicate node created and ROS shuts down. not sure what I can do. Is it possible to use both together?

" I wrapped a C++ class that uses ROS systems in python. I followed the tutorial here ([ ])

in the tutorial is state that I must call roscpp_init('name', argv) because ROSCPP is not initialized. (Class with NodeHandle section of tutorial)

I call roscpp_init('name', argue) and next I call rospy.init('name', agrv) this causes a duplicate named nodes and my first node shuts down. my launch file has the node name defined in it. "

Be aware that the C++ node and the Python node have nothing in common. If you use both APIs you will effectively create two separate nodes.

Thanks, that was unclear until I discovered the duplicate node errors.

I think I answered my own question. I had to pass in rospy.myargv(sys.argv) into ropy.init_node
