       swig - Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator


       swig [options] file


       The  swig  command  is  used to create wrapper code to connect C and C++ code to scripting
       languages like Perl, Python, etc. from the  definition  of  the  interface.  For  detailed
       information  on  writing  those interface definitions please refer to /usr/share/doc/swig-
       doc/Manual/index.html from the swig-doc package.  This manpage concentrates on  explaining
       the invocation of the swig command.
