Sihal has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've just read the introduction to XS and SWIG in both the camel and the Advanced Perl, and I was wondering what is the difference between them, in terms of what things are easier to do with each one, and so on.
I have a whole C++ API that I need to make available through a perl module. What would be the best choice between XS and SWIG ? (on perl 5.6.1 BTW)
My main concerns are ease of use and speed to implement (just have a few days to do the stuff, sadly).
