Heres possibly two mistakes. Since you're dealing with c++ you must
turn on the -c++ option. You probably want the -shadow option as well.
I guess that you use an incorrect makefile. Try to look at the
Makefile in the python/array/ example that follows with SWIG.

I also advise you to check the SWIG User Guide at
<Url: > for reading about SWIG and c++.
There is also a mailing list, which is a more proper place for
SWIG-related discussions I suppose.
