Hello. I really really need to be able to interface well with a C++ library which contains lots of classes if I am going to further invest time into D. Now from the http://dlang.org/cpp_interface I find out the current status of built-in C++ interfacing support. I'm working on Linux so using the COM support is not an option for me (whatever COM may be!). A few queries: 1) How mature is the SWIG support for wrapping a library into D? Specifically does the above SWIG support take advantage of the built-in C++ support features like connecting directly to virtual functions? 2) Is there any further work underway to implement support for static and non-virtual class member functions? Or is this not at all possible? If so, why? 3) The page speaks about having to integrate an entire C++ compiler into the D compiler. Could the usage of libclang help here in having to avoid writing a new C++ compiler module or am I talking through my (non-existent) hat? -- Shriramana Sharma ஶ்ரீரமணஶர்மா श्रीरमणशर्मा

You can see http://wiki.dlang.org/DIP61 and linked discussions. Static and virtual functions probably work. Constructors and destructors probably don't. What's difficult is multiple inheritance. The information on C++ support is largely considered private to the compiler team.
