SWIG is an interface compiler that connects programs written in C and C++ with scripting languages such as Perl, Python, Ruby, and Tcl. It works by taking the declarations found in C/C++ header files and using them to generate the wrapper code that scripting languages need to access the underlying C/C++ code. In addition, SWIG provides a variety of customization features that let you tailor the wrapping process to suit your application.

Mounting volumes between the container and your machine

To access files from your machine within the swig container you’ll have to mount them using the -v external/path:internal/path option.

docker run -v ~/Documents/Data:/Data ghcr.io/autamus/swig swig /Data/myData.csv

which will mount the ~/Documents/Data directory on your computer to the /Data directory within the container.
