What is elmer?

Elmer is a tool which embeds a Python module into a C, C++, or Tcl application. The embedded Python module is used just as if it was written in the same language as the application itself, without requiring any knowledge of the Python/C API.

Elmer generates "glue" code that embeds an interpreter for one type of language into an extension for another. Elmer allows function calls and various data types, both native and custom, to pass transparently between the two languages.
