I can think of two advantages SWIG has: It is relatively easy to
create bindings for several different scripting languages from the
same interface definition. And in contrast to most FFIs I know it is
relatively easy to create wrappers for C++ libraries even if you need
advanced features like inheritance chains crossing the language


When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
