Hi there !

I am afraid there is no real documentation for the python binding
(someone please correct me if I m wrong).

I think that, as they are build automatically with swig, they are
suppose to be identical to the way c++ work (with all the type
transformation magic that can go in the process...)

Last time i played with python, i was using the C++ doc and using the
online python help mechanism to try to find wich method in python
matched with method in C++. It more or less worked as expected :-)

Overview of the main classes:

Some code example:

I do not know of an existing python frontend, but that would be the
best way to get working example.

I have some example on my own i store in github:


I hope it can help.
