use swig to generate Perl bindings for gpgme
Closed, WontfixPublic


It's great having python support natively included in GPGME. I've been reviewing the gpg support in other languages, and perl is kind of all over the place -- nearly a dozen packages offering different (many of them broken or unusable) interfaces to GnuPG.

If GPGME could natively produce a perl module, that would be great! I think swig is supposed to be able to do that, but i don't know swig well enough to make it happen myself right now. So this is a request for that feature.

The Python bindings are troublesome enough; as of today we don't want to maintain a Perl module.
