The WFDB library and languages other than C

If you wish to use or develop WFDB applications in C, C++ or Fortran, everything necessary is included in the WFDB Software Package.

The separate wfdb-swig package provides wrappers for the WFDB library so that it can be used by applications written in a variety of other languages supported by SWIG, the Simplified Wrapper Interface Generator. At the time of writing, the languages that are known to work with wfdb-swig wrappers are Perl, Python,, Java, and C#. Other languages supported by SWIG include Guile, mzScheme, PHP, Ruby, and Tcl. You will need to install wfdb-swig wrappers for your platform and language after installing the WFDB Software Package. Download the wfdb-swig package from http://physionet.org/physiotools/wfdb-swig.shtml, the wfdb-swig home page on PhysioNet, and build and install the wrappers you need following the instructions on that page.

The WFDB Toolbox for Matlab provides a set of WFDB applications for Matlab, based on the SWIG Java wrappers; install it with one click from the link you will find on its home page, http://physionet.org/physiotools/matlab/wfdb-swig-matlab/.
