Summary: Python3 bindings generator for C/C++ libraries
Description: 
SIP is a collection of tools that makes it very easy
to create Python bindings for C and C++ libraries.

SIP comprises a set of build tools and a sip module.
The build tools process a set of specification files
and generates C or C++ code which is then compiled
to create the bindings extension module.
Several extension modules may be installed
in the same Python package.
Extension modules can be built so that they are
independent of the version of Python being used.
In other words a wheel created from them
can be installed with any version of Python starting with v3.5.

The specification files contain a description of the interface
of the C or C++ library, i.e. the classes, methods, functions and variables.
The format of a specification file is almost identical to a C or C++ header file,
so much so that the easiest way of creating a specification file
is to edit a copy of the corresponding header file.

The sip module provides support functions to the automatically generated code.
The sip module is installed as part of the same Python package
as the generated extension modules.
Unlike the extension modules the sip module is specific
to a particular version of Python (e.g. v3.5, v3.6, v3.7, v3.8).

SIP makes it easy to exploit existing C or C++ libraries
in a productive interpretive programming environment.
SIP also makes it easy to take a Python application (maybe a prototype)
and selectively implement parts of the application (maybe for performance reasons) in C or C++.
