How to pretty-print ctypes composite data types?

Posts: n/a
I'm using ctypes with a library that requires a handful of structure
definitions. The actual definitions and usage aren't a problem. When
it comes time to print out the values in a structure or array, there
doesn't seem to be simple/general way to do that. Am I missing

I presume one can recursively iterate through the fields in a
structure and elements in an array, recursing on any composite types
and printing the values when one finds a type, but I'm surprised
that's not something that's already in the ctypes library somewhere --
the authors certainly seem to have thought of everything else.

at all the artists in downtown Burbank!
