4.310. swig

An updated swig package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator (SWIG) is a software development utility for connecting C, C++ and Objective C programs with a variety of high-level programming languages. SWIG is primarily used with Perl, Python and Tcl/TK, but it has also been extended to Java, Eiffel and Guile. SWIG is normally used to create high-level interpreted programming environments, systems integration, and as a tool for building user interfaces.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the swig utility emitted a nonexistent "zend_error_noreturn" function call instead of the "zend_error" call into a generated PHP code. This bug has been fixed in this update, and swig now correctly emits only the "zend_error" call as expected.
All users of swig are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
