Introduction to SWIG

SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages. SWIG is used with different types of languages including common scripting languages such as Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl, Ruby and PHP. The list of supported languages also includes non-scripting languages such as C#, Common Lisp (CLISP, Allegro CL, CFFI, UFFI), Java, Modula-3 and OCAML. Also several interpreted and compiled Scheme implementations (Guile, MzScheme, Chicken) are supported. SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level interpreted or compiled programming environments, user interfaces, and as a tool for testing and prototyping C/C++ software. SWIG can also export its parse tree in the form of XML and Lisp s-expressions.

Dependencies

Optional

Test Suite Note

If you're going to run the test suite, use make -k check instead of just make check. You don't stand a prayer of a chance of finishing all of the tests otherwise. Also, note that there are a lot of tests run, so the test suite will take a while and that it's highly likely that many tests will fail even if SWIG built correctly. Take a look at the README for more details.
