%X occam\-pi is a programming language based on the CSP process
algebra and the pi\-calculus, and has a powerful syntax for
expressing concurrency. occam\-pi does not however, come
with interfaces to a broad range of standard libraries (such
as those used for graphics or mathematics). Programmers
wishing to use these must write their own wrappers using
occam\-pi’s foreign function interface, which can be
tedious and time consuming. SWIG offers automatic generation
of wrappers for libraries written in C and C++, allowing
access to these for the target languages supported by SWIG.
This paper describes the occam\-pi module for SWIG, which
will allow automatic wrapper generation for occam\-pi, and
will ensure that occam\-pi’s library base can be grown in
a quick and efficient manner. Access to database, graphics
and hardware interfacing libraries can all be provided with
relative ease when using SWIG to automate the bulk of the
