Welcome to the SWIG Wiki page! The purpose of this site is to collect information regarding the installation, use, and discussion of SWIG.

SWIG is the acronym for Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator. It is a software development tool that connects programs written in C and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages. SWIG is used with different types of target languages, including common scripting languages such as Javascript, Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl, and Ruby. The list of supported languages also includes non-scripting languages such as C#, D, Go language, Java including Android, Lua, OCaml, Octave, Scilab and R. Also several interpreted and compiled Scheme implementations (Guile, MzScheme/Racket) are supported. SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level interpreted or compiled programming environments, user interfaces, and as a tool for testing and prototyping C/C++ software. SWIG is typically used to parse C/C++ interfaces and generate the 'glue code' required for the above target languages to call into the C/C++ code. SWIG can also export its parse tree in the form of XML. SWIG is free software, and the code that SWIG generates is compatible with both commercial and non-commercial projects.
