SIP is a tool for generating bindings for C++ classes with some ideas
borrowed from SWIG, but capable of tighter bindings because of its
specificity towards C++ and Python.
SIP was originally designed to generate Python bindings for KDE and so
has explicit support for the signal slot mechanism used by the Qt/KDE
class libraries.
- connecting Qt signals to Python functions and class methods
- connecting Python signals to Qt slots
- overloading virtual member functions with Python class methods
- protected member functions
- abstract classes
- enumerated types
- global class instances
- static member functions.
This package contains sipdistutils and the development headers needed to
develop Python bindings with sip.
