*** ANNOUNCE: SWIG 2.0.9 (16 December 2012) ***
We're pleased to announce SWIG-2.0.9, the latest SWIG release.
What is SWIG?
SWIG is a software development tool that reads C/C++ header files and
generates the wrapper code needed to make C and C++ code accessible
from other programming languages including Perl, Python, Tcl, Ruby,
PHP, C#, Go, Java, Lua, Scheme (Guile, MzScheme, CHICKEN), D, Ocaml,
Pike, Modula-3, Octave, R, Common Lisp (CLISP, Allegro CL, CFFI, UFFI).
SWIG can also export its parse tree in the form of XML and Lisp
s-expressions. Major applications of SWIG include generation of
scripting language extension modules, rapid prototyping, testing,
and user interface development for large C/C++ systems.
The release is available for download on Sourceforge at
