I can see that my suggested approach doesn't work. The problem is that
there's a function in your interface somewhere that takes a
TextRecordIterator& argument, and we've only exposed
TextRecordIteratorWrapper. I suppose you'll have to revert to using the
technique I suggested to Ralf Grosse-Kunstleve in the excerpt below:


Hi Ralf,

First of all, I can see that this is a usage for which I need to arrange
better support. Although you can mutate the signature of any member function
by wrapping it in another function, I don't have a similar provision for
constructors. That said, I thinkyou could hijack some of the functionality
described in the section on Overridable Virtual Functions (even though you
don't have any virtual functions). I suggest this workaround:

struct UnitCellWrapper : UnitCell
    UnitCellWrapper(PyObject* self, py::Tuple x, py::Tuple y)
        : UnitCell(from_python(x[1], py::Type<double>()),
                        from_python(x[2], py::Type<double>()),
                        from_python(x[3], py::Type<double>()),
                        from_python(y[1], py::Type<double>()),
                        from_python(y[2], py::Type<double>()),
                        from_python(y[3], py::Type<double>()))

py::ClassWrapper<UnitCell, UnitCellWrapper> unit_cell_class;
unit_cell_class.def(py::Constructor<py::Tuple, py::Tuple>());

The key is to use the optional 2nd template parameter to ClassWrapper.
