Boost.Python Library development files (default version)

This package forms part of the Boost C++ Libraries collection.

The Boost Python Library is used to quickly and easily export a C++ library to Python such that the Python interface is very similar to the C++ interface. It is designed to be minimally intrusive on your C++ design. In most cases, you should not have to alter your C++ classes in any way in order to use them with Boost.Python. The system should simply "reflect" your C++ classes and functions into Python. The major features of Boost.Python include support for: Subclassing extension types in Python, Overriding virtual functions in Python, Member function Overloading, Automatic wrapping of numeric operators among others.

This package allows development of a Python interface for all current versions of Python in Debian. Code using this library will need also one of the Python development packages.

This package is a dependency package, which depends on Debian's default Boost version (currently 1.74).
