Aaah and I've just noticed that boost::python uses the boost preprocessor
stuff that I think does effectively through macros generate a load of
templates for up to a constant N number of templated function arguments -
and am I right in that this mad preprocessor stuff it recursively includes

Subject: [boost] Trying to do something like boost::python for Netscapes
As the subject says I'm trying to a boost::python like equivalent for
at boost::python for inspiration. I've got to the stage where I can quite
happily expose a class like so:
// D3D's Vector class just for example
Declare<D3DXVECTOR>::Property<0>("x", &D3DXVECTOR3::x); // 0 is 'tinyid'
Declare<D3DXVECTOR>::Property<1>("y", &D3DXVECTOR3::y); // 1 is 'tinyid'
Declare<D3DXVECTOR>::Property<2>("z", &D3DXVECTOR3::z); // 2 is 'tinyid'
Declare<D3DXVECTOR>::Definition("Vector3", jsContext, jsObject,
without issue ie:
var v = new Vector3();
v.x = 4.0f;
Now I want to expose methods and constructors. Originally I was planning to
have a load of templates for each number of arguments a function could
possibly take (which obviously isn't ideal), but looking at boost::python it
seems it has a more elegant but currently illegible to me way of doing this?
Has anyone got any pointers to how this works or comments that would help my
