In the past few years Tcl has found widespread interest as a
extensible scripting language. Numerous Tcl interfaces for a variety
of C libraries have been created. While most of these language
bindings have been created by hand, others have made use of dedicated
code generators designed for the specific library.
In this paper we present a tool for the automatic generation of Tcl
language bindings for arbitrary C libraries. Moreover, the mapping of
C++ class hierarchies to [incr Tcl] classes will be described.
