       cswig - generate Python and Tcl wrappers from C++ code.


       cswig [options] files...


       CableSwig  (cswig)  is  used  to create interfaces (i.e. "wrappers") to
       interpreted languages such as Tcl and Python. It was created to produce
       wrappers  for  ITK  because  the  toolkit uses C++ structures that SWIG
       cannot parse (deeply nested template instantiations).  CableSwig  is  a
       combination  tool  that uses GCC_XML as the c++ parser. The input files
       are Cable style input files. The XML produced  from  the  Cable/GCC_XML
       input  files  are then parsed and feed into a modified version of SWIG.
       SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C
       and  C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages. It is used
       to generate the language bindings to the  target  language.  Currently,
       Tcl and Python are supported.
