A Python/C++ Bindings Generator  

SIP is a tool for generating bindings for C++ classes so that they can be accessed as normal Python classes. SIP takes many of its ideas from SWIG but, because it is specifically designed for C++ and Python, is able to generate tighter bindings.

It's part of Phil Thompsonīs marvelous PyQt / PyKde package. I think its really great stuff and well worth more attention and other application. It is work in progress though and therefore still lacking its documentation.

When I started learning and playing with SIP, I took some notes which eventually grew into a preliminary documentation. Though I still consider it a framework and starting point only, it might already be helpful to others. So feel free to use the sources or read it online but be warned: its still very incomplete and probably contains numerous errors.

I appreciate any feedback or contribution, please contact me.
