In the subject you use C++/Python but above you use C/Python, both are
very different cases. If you wrap C++ API, I'd go with Boost Python
. IMHO, there is nothing better than Boost Python for C++, it beats
SWIG regarding C++ language support.
I don't have much experience with wrapping C for Python, but some
users say ctypes may be better than SWIG.
