As someone with *no* experience with .NET but with some python
extension code I may one day find myself trying to port to IronPython,
I wonder: does anyone have an idea of what is involved in porting a
python extension module to IronPython / .NET. Any thoughts on how the
use of extension building code interacts with this, eg boost::python,
pycxx or SWIG?
Thanks, John Hunter
