PyBindGen is a Python module that is geared to generating C/C++ code that
binds a C/C++ library for Python. It does so without extensive use of either
C++ templates or C pre-processor macros. It has modular handling of C/C++
types, and can be easily extended with Python plugins. The generated code is
almost as clean as what a human programmer would write.

It can be downloaded from:
