Wrapping C++ libraries for use from Python is a profitable undertaking, given the wealth of functionality that becomes available after doing so. Python, in contrast with Java, has been designed from the outset to be easily extensible with ‘foreign' libraries written in C. C++, however, is a far more complex language than C, and requires careful attention to the creation, ownership and destruction of objects. Trolltech have made the work even more complicated with the invention of a special meta-object pre-compiler needed to get techniques like signals and slots working.
