The new Python C++ SIG is a forum for discussions about the integration of Python and C++, with an emphasis on the development of the Boost.Python library (http://www.boost.org/libs/python/doc/index.html). Currently, Boost.Python is undergoing a major rewrite to add powerful new features and to take full advantage of the new type system introduced in Python 2.2. A detailed list of the current development goals is posted at:
Suggestions regarding the direction of the development work and contributions in the form of source code should be posted to this SIG.
Boost.Python is a popular open-source tool for interfacing Python and C++. Boost.Python is built on accessible, well-maintained, well documented components (the Boost C++ Library), so it does not tie its users to the services of any one programmer or organization. Developers worldwide have contributed significant unsolicited improvements to the project. The main developer and coordinator of the library is David Abrahams.
Relation to Boost forums
Boost.Python related issues have also been discussed in the two Yahoo groups firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (http://groups.yahoo.com/). Most discussions in these groups are concerned with advanced C++ library development. The Python SIG is focused on Python/C++ interfacing.
