I dont have any software yet that uses py_cpp. I am trying to wrap
VTK using py_cpp and have just started. Hopefully in some time I
would have got somewhere. The link above uses an existing python
wrapping for VTK that is far more rudimetary. It works but the
wrappings are not in the class of what py_cpp can produce. Hopefully,
once I finish the py_cpp conversion I can give you a relevant link.
Later, maybe more libraries will be wrapped...

<snipped off discussion on arrays/pointers>

Thanks for the info on handling arrays and pointers to them - will let
you know if I have problems.

Actually, I started wrapping the most fundamental base class in VTK
and ran into compile time problems. I have no clue what is wrong. I
will work on it for a little while longer and then let you know of the
details in personal email.
