SWIG (Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator) is a development that connects programs written in C and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages. It is primarily used with common scripting languages such as Perl, Python, Tcl/Tk, and Ruby, but it also supports non-scripting languages such as Java, OCAML and C# and several interpreted and compiled Scheme implementations (Guile, MzScheme, Chicken). 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. It can also export its parse tree as XML and Lisp s-expressions.
