Overview

SIP is a tool for generating Python bindings for C and C++ libraries in the form of extension modules. Originally developed for the purpose of creating Qt bindings for Python, it is also used as part of the toolchain used to create bindings for the Qwt and KDE libraries.

New bindings created with SIP can be based on existing bindings, allowing an established hierarchy of classes to be extended with new ones in an interoperable way. Both the KDE and Qwt bindings are based on Qt bindings.
