Thanks.

Here it is, in /usr/include/python2.4/object.h:

#define Py_DECREF(op)                                   \
        if (_Py_DEC_REFTOTAL  _Py_REF_DEBUG_COMMA       \
            --(op)->ob_refcnt != 0)                     \
                _Py_CHECK_REFCNT(op)                    \
        else                                            \
                _Py_Dealloc((PyObject *)(op))


Thanks,
