Using C++ Class Libraries from an Interpreted Language

[pdf]

 

Abstract

The use of object-oriented programming, and C++ in particular, to build reusable
class libraries has proven to be a very successful programming technique. However, the
exible composition of class libraries to create application programs has received little
focus. In this paper we present a tool, that automatically maps a C++ class hierarchy
to an equivalent hierarchy in an interpreted language. Using an interpreted language
offers the programmer more exibility when composing applications from existing class
libraries.
