Hello, thanks in advance for any help.

1)
I have a c++ header file which contains an enumeration:
   enum animal { monkey, chimp, ... };

The header file also contains a function definition:
  int noise (const char* name, int number_of_noses, animal a);

SWIG generates an interface, and correctly makes the enumerated values available, but when I try to use the function in python:
   >> handle = interface.noise("test", 2, interface.monkey)

Python says that I am using the wrong type or number of arguments and kindly lists the available prototypes. It does not seem that SWIG is getting the typemapping correct. Any tips?
