    If you have read my earlier posts you know I love multilingual programming. One important part of multilingual programming is how to interface one language with other. Typically this is called FFI or foreign function interface. At the lowest level often there are libraries (aka bindings) to talk across languages or across implementations of same language e.g. libffi. In my undergrad we did a group project where we created language bindings to separate algorithmic part written in python and opencv and X11 logic in c.
