SWIG (Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator) is a compiler that integrates C and C++ with languages including Perl, Python, Tcl, Ruby, PHP, Java, C#, D, Go, Lua, Octave, R, Scheme, Ocaml, Modula-3, Common Lisp, and Pike. SWIG can also export its parse tree into Lisp s-expressions and XML.
SWIG reads annotated C/C++ header files and creates wrapper code (glue code) in order to make the corresponding C/C++ libraries available to the listed languages, or to extend C/C++ programs with a scripting language.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.7 platform.

Fix an issue with gccgo-4.9.2:
sed -e 's/"\.")/"_")/' -i Source/Modules/go.cxx
Install SWIG by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr \ --without-clisp \ --without-maximum-compile-warnings && make
To test the results, issue: make -k check. If you have both Python-2.7.9 and Python-3.4.2 installed, only the Python-2 tests are run. You can run test for Python-3 by issuing PY3=1 make check-python-examples followed by PY3=1 make check-python-test-suite. According to SWIG's documentation, the failure of some tests should not be considered harmful.
Now, as the
make install && install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/swig-3.0.5 && cp -v -R Doc/* /usr/share/doc/swig-3.0.5
disables compiler ansi conformance enforcement, which triggers
errors in the Lua headers
(starting with Lua 5.3).
disabling the building of tests and examples for <language>,
but all the languages capabilities of SWIG are always built. We use it for
Clisp, because the SWIG
implementation is very incomplete and a lot of tests fail.
