SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C,
C++, and Objective-C with a variety of high-level programming languages.
SWIG is primarily used with common scripting languages such as Perl, Python,
Tcl/Tk, Ruby, and Guile but has also been extended to include languages such
as Java and Eiffel. SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level
interpreted programming environments and as a tool for building user
interfaces. SWIG may be freely used, distributed, and modified for
commercial and noncommercial use
