Shroud is a tool for creating a Fortran or Python interface to a C or C++ library. It can also create a C API for a C++ library.
The user creates a YAML file with the C/C++ declarations to be wrapped along with some annotations to provide semantic information and code generation options. Shroud produces a wrapper for the library. The generated code is highly-readable and intended to be similar to code that would be hand-written to create the bindings.
- wrap or dress (a body) in a shroud for burial.
- cover or envelop so as to conceal from view.
