Delphi SWIG
« on: March 29, 2020, 12:48:17 pm »
I search the internet and came across this article: http://www.fmxexpress.com/create-wrapper-interfaces-for-c-and-c-libraries-using-swig-with-delphi-support/

However, the version from this repo didn't build: https://github.com/FMXExpress/swig-delphi

But the one from this repo did: https://github.com/lynxnake/swig

I didn't test if it works or not. But I just want to share it with you.

p/s: The last commit was from 2017, it seemed he abandoned it.

Update: Don't use this tool. It will not help anything but only worsen the problem. It generated binding is a mess and doesn't work. This tool need a paid professional working fully on it to be usable. But now, just don't use it. h2pas is still the preferred solution.

Could you please update wiki with your findings and specific release info that builds?

Basically you just login with your forum account, open mentioned wiki page, click the "Edit" page tab at the top of the page, make changes to the text, and click the "Save page" button.

Your information is wrong. Forum account can't login into the wiki. We have to create a separate Wiki account.

p/s: I updated it as your request.

Then I apologize for misleading information. It has been a while since I did that.

I updated the Wiki to reflect my experience but with more appropriate words.
