I am using Python to develop a GUI for some underlying C++
computation. I wrap my Cpp code using SWIG.

As my computation takes some time, I am considering ways to provide
the user with some feedback on the state of the Cpp code.

Unfortunately, it seems I cannot use directly a Python procedure as a
callback using SWIG. (or is there). I imagine other people came across
this problem, so I thought I would post this and see what solutions
people came up with.

I have a library which was written in C, you call a function, it provides the result by a callback to specific function names. I am trying to wrap the calls to this inside a class, but this causes a problem with the callbacks, for example: class X { public: add(); };
