Thank you for your swift reply,
The language I am planning to experiment in is Java. Thanks for the
input, I think have a starting point now.
I’ll post back any findings encountered… and questions, of course.
P.S. Yes, I took a peek at the gnuradio-core and relaised, well, it’s
alot … however, I get to learn about Swig and I’m picking up bits and
pieces of Python. Always exciting learning a new language.

I can work out the details for my experiments …
Sorry, there really aren’t any small ones. For gnuradio-core, it all
gets pulled together in gnuradio-core/src/lib/swig. We build
5 separate modules that are logically a single entity. (We used to
build them as a single entity, but the 6MB of generated C++ code got a
bit too large for people with < 512MB to compile).
The first module to study is gnuradio.i which gets compiled into
gnuradio_swig_py_runtime.*. It contains the base of the inheritance
You’ll want to spend some quality time with the swig documentation.
The main things to study are the overview, C, C++ and Python chapters.
We don’t do anything fancy with typemaps. We mostly avoid those
problems by designing our C++ interfaces to be “SWIG friendly”.
What’s your other language?
Let us know when you’ve got more questions
 Actually, there are a few small ones, but I don’t think they’ll
help you get going. You could look at gr-audio-alsa/src/audio_alsa.i,
but it has a dependency on gnuradio.i, so you’re back to
