Python extensions from GRASS GIS

Work done

SWIG (Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator) is: 1) A compiler that turns ANSI C/C++ declarations into scripting language interfaces. 2) Completely automated (produces a fully working Python extension module). 3) Language neutral. SWIG can also target Tcl, Perl, Guile, MATLAB, etc... 4) Attempts to eliminate the tedium of writing extension modules.
