Hi all,

Does anyone else want (or miss) the Smalltalk SWIG interface?  

SWIG is a software development tool that connects libraries written in C and C++ with high-level programming languages; see http://swig.org <http://swig.org/>. It is supported by most of the cerrent “scripting” languages.

There’s code in the VisualWorks repo that’s really stale and relies on a set of compiler extensions.  It worked great a few releases ago.

It would be useful for a range of apps (like mine) to be able to call out to C/C++ libraries via auto-generated OO APIs.
