Hi Paul,

I have a fairly comprehensive set of typedefs (including 1-D and 2-D
array input and output) for interfacing Numeric arrays here:

ftp://cfa-ftp.harvard.edu/pub/ransom/numpy.i

As an example, say you have a function with a prototype:

int foo(double *array, int len_array);

You would simply make a ".i" file with the following:

======================
%module foo
%include numpy.i 

%apply double* IN_1D_DOUBLE { double *array };
int bar(double *array, int len_array);

=======================

Run swig on it, compile it, and import it.

Hope this helps,

Scott
