[Pythonmac-SIG] CXX and SCXX
Wed, 01 Sep 1999 14:05:36 +0200
Has anyone used CXX or SCXX with MacPython? Comments?
In case you've never heard of these: CXX is a set of C++ templates that allow
you to treat Python objects as first class citizens in C++ code. So all the
INCREFs and DECREFs are taken care of, if you get passed two Python number
objects in your C++ code you can just do "a + b" and you'll get back a Python
object with the sum of them, etc. It all looks really really neat, from the
description. CXX is part of the LLNL distribution.
SCXX is a lightweight re-implementation of it, which was recently announced to
python-announce (the URL is http://starship.python.net/crew/gmcm/scxx.html).
And, if noone has used it yet: does anyone have a project in which they could
The reason I'm asking all this is that it looks like CXX could make life _so_
much easier for writing Toolbox modules and such that it might be worthwhile
to switch to C++ for the Toolbox modules, provided all this stuff indeed
