Generative and incremental implementation for a scripting interface

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Many systems may benefit from scripting support, but the implementation of it is seldom trivial, especially if the system has not originally been developed with scripting support in mind. In this paper we describe a generative, incremental process for creating an intuitive Python interface to a large, hierarchic COM library. The approach is illuminated with the original, real-life case study.
