swig char ** as a pointer to a char *

hope this fix your issue From the SWIG 3.0 documentation, near the end of §9.2.1 cpointer.i:
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include "pointers.h"

void conc(char *str1, char *str2, char **res){
  *res = (char *)malloc(strlen(str1)+strlen(str2)+1);
void conc(char *str1, char *str2, char **res);
%module pointers

#include "pointers.h"

// This input typemap declares that char** requires no input parameter.
// Instead, the address of a local char* is used to call the function.
%typemap(in,numinputs=0) char** (char* tmp) %{
    $1 = &tmp;

// After the function is called, the char** parameter contains a malloc'ed char* pointer.
// Construct a Python Unicode object (I'm using Python 3) and append it to
// any existing return value for the wrapper.
%typemap(argout) char** (PyObject* obj) %{
    obj = PyUnicode_FromString(*$1);
    $result = SWIG_Python_AppendOutput($result,obj);

// The malloc'ed pointer is no longer needed, so make sure it is freed.
%typemap(freearg) char** %{

// Now that the typemap exists, let swig wrap the header.
%include "pointers.h"
import pointers
result = pointers.conc('Hello ','World!');

How do I use a pointer to char from SWIG, in Perl?

Tag : cpp , By : Mossy Breen

With these it helps Depending on the complexity of the C++ interface, it may be easier, faster, and more maintainable to skip SWIG and write the XS code yourself. XS&C++ is a bit of an arcane art. That's why there is Mattia Barbon's excellent ExtUtils::XSpp module on CPAN. It make wrapping C++ easy (and almost fun).
The ExtUtils::XSpp distribution includes a very simple (and contrived) example of a class that has a string (char*) and an integer member. Here's what the cut-down interface file could look like:
// This will be used to generate the XS MODULE line

// Associate a perl class with a C++ class
%name{Object::WithIntAndString} class IntAndString
  // can be called in Perl as Object::WithIntAndString->new( ... );

  // Object::WithIntAndString->newIntAndString( ... );
  // %name can be used to assign methods a different name in Perl
  %name{newIntAndString} IntAndString( const char* str, int arg );

  // standard DESTROY method

  // Will be available from Perl given that the types appear in the typemap
  int GetInt();
  const char* GetString ();

  // SetValue is polymorphic. We want separate methods in Perl
  %name{SetString} void SetValue( const char* arg = NULL );
  %name{SetInt} void SetValue( int arg );

How does SWIG wrap buffer(char array) and pointer from C to Python?

Tag : python , By : socurious

this will help The problem is that SWIG is trying to wrap the buffer as a String in Python, which is not just a pointer. The synthesised assignment for next_ptr will allocate memory and make a string copy, not just do a pointer assignment. You can work around this in several ways.
The simplest is to use %extend to add a "reset buffer" method in Python:
%extend {
  void resetPtr() {
%apply void * { char *next };
%apply void * { char buf[ANY] };

Is it safe to cast an unsigned char* to char*, and treat the dereferenced pointer as if it really points to a char?

but there's no such guarantee in the C++11 Standard (N3337), nor in the upcoming C++14 (N3797).
char unsigned * p1 = ...;
char          * p2 = reinterpret_cast<char *> (p1);

*p1 == *p2; // (1), not guaranteed to be true
*p1 = UCHAR_MAX;

*p1 == *p2; // (1)

swig python output parameter by reference of char** (char**&)

I hope this helps you . I'm struggled with the c++ wrap for python using swig, what makes me stuck is the output parameter by reference of char** (a list of char*). , One issue is this line:
PyList_Append($result, PyUnicode_FromString( *$1[itoken] )); 
PyList_Append($result, PyUnicode_FromString( (*$1)[itoken] ));
#ifdef EXPORTS
#   define API __declspec(dllexport)
#   define API __declspec(dllimport)

API void getKeys(const char **& keys, int& result_length);
#define EXPORTS
#include "dict.hpp"

API void getKeys(const char **& keys, int& result_length)
    result_length = 5;
    keys = new const char*[result_length];
    keys[0] = "abcd";
    keys[1] = "efgh";
    keys[2] = "ijkl";
    keys[3] = "mnop";
    keys[4] = "qrst";
%module dict

#include "dict.hpp"

%include <windows.i>

%typemap(in,numinputs=0) (const char**& keys,int& result_length) (char **temp, int len) %{
  $1 = &temp;
  $2 = &len;

%typemap(argout) (const char**& keys,int& result_length) (PyObject* obj) %{
    obj = PyList_New(*$2);
    for (int itoken = 0; itoken < *$2; itoken++) {
        PyList_SET_ITEM(obj, itoken, PyUnicode_FromString( (*$1)[itoken] )); 
    $result = SWIG_Python_AppendOutput($result,obj);

%typemap(freearg) (const char**& keys,int& result_length) %{
    delete [] *$1;

%include "dict.hpp"
Python 3.6.3 (v3.6.3:2c5fed8, Oct  3 2017, 18:11:49) [MSC v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
