There are at least 2 C++ libraries for Python. cxx (from the
LLNL download) is a very sophisticated one, my SCXX is a
vastly simpler, less complete and lighterweight one (on my
starship pages). There may be more - check out the C++ SIG.
In both of the above, the emphasis is on making commonly
used PyObjects look like C++ objects.
As for "embedding" - there is no embedding API. Embedding
to highly complex interactions where you're importing
modules, creating instances, calling methods etc. cxx covers
a great deal more of that, but SCXX doesn't use templates and
most of it ends up inline.
