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-8.0 platform.

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 TCL_INCLUDE= GOGCC=true. The (un)setting of
the two variables
TCL_INCLUDE is necessary, since they are not
correctly set by configure.
The tests are only executed for the languages installed on your
machine, so the disk space and SBU values given for the tests may
vary, and should be considered as mere orders of magnitude. If you
have both Python-2.7.13 and Python-3.6.1 installed, the
Python-3 tests are not run. You can run tests 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-3.0.12 && cp -v -R Doc/* /usr/share/doc/swig-3.0.12
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.
