code generator to convert header files into ctypes interfaces
Ctypeslib is a code generator capable of converting C header files
into xml files (using gccxml), and then converting the xmlfiles into
Python modules which define a ctypes interface to the corresponding C
Ctypeslib is not ctypes. Ctypes is included in python2.5+, while
ctypeslib is a lesser known add-on by the ctypes author. If you use
ctypes a lot and are tired of setting argtypes and restype of the
called functions, you should look into ctypeslib. Ctypeslib can also
set up data types and structures from C header files automatically.
Ctypeslib could be used to integrate Python with an existing C project,
or from the start with a new project to ease development of a Python/C
ctypeslib for Debian
Ctypeslib is unreleased as of yet, however worked very well for its
stated usage of automatically generating ctypes interfaces from C or
C++ header files.
As far as I can tell, there are not a large number of users of
ctypeslib yet. I hope that this Debian package will build a userbase
and get bugs worked out and features added as needed.
