Answer

I guess you have to compile the .c file you have obtained.

Assuming you are using python 3.5 and don't have to link to other libraries than python you can do this with a simple gcc command like :

gcc -I /usr/include/python3.5m -o your_program your_file.c -lpython3.5m

(you might need to remove the m following the version number)

As you expect it will use the if __name__ == "__main__": statement as entry-point of the program.
