I already have this set to true. I more meant:

void foo(int a=1, int b=2, int c=3)

... and then from python do:


You need to declare parameter names to do this, but BPL faults when 
the type is (say) an enum defined in the class it's about to declare.

All I need is the ability to insert custom code into the body of 
class files. Put simply, I need to insert DEFINEMAKECARRAYITER at the 
top of every FXImage.pypp.cpp, FXBMPImage.pypp.cpp, 
FXJPGImage.pypp.cpp etc.

It needs to go before or after the wrapper class. Declared inside the 

If you add an overloads section (see previous email) containing all 
come after the wrapper class but before the register function), then 
I could add them there as a custom text code creator.
