This library provides support for applying constraints to function
arguments.  Using a constraint, you can restrict arguments to be
positive numbers, non-NULL pointers, and so on.   The following
constraints are available :

      Number  POSITIVE        - Positive number (not zero)
      Number  NEGATIVE        - Negative number (not zero)
      Number  NONZERO         - Nonzero number
      Number  NONNEGATIVE     - Positive number (including zero)
      Number  NONPOSITIVE     - Negative number (including zero)
      Pointer NONNULL         - Non-NULL pointer
      Pointer ALIGN8          - 8-byte aligned pointer
      Pointer ALIGN4          - 4-byte aligned pointer
      Pointer ALIGN2          - 2-byte aligned pointer

To use the constraints, you need to "apply" them to specific
function arguments in your code.  This is done using the %apply
directive.   For example :

  %apply Number NONNEGATIVE { double nonneg };
  double sqrt(double nonneg);         // Name of argument must match
  %apply Pointer NONNULL { void *ptr };
  void *malloc(int POSITIVE);       // May return a NULL pointer
  void free(void *ptr);             // May not accept a NULL pointer

Any function argument of the type you specify with the %apply directive
will be checked with the appropriate constraint.   Multiple types may
be specified as follows :

  %apply Pointer NONNULL { void *, Vector *, List *, double *};

In this case, all of the types listed would be checked for non-NULL 

The common datatypes of int, short, long, unsigned int, unsigned long,
unsigned short, unsigned char, signed char, float, and double can be
checked without using the %apply directive by simply using the 
constraint name as the parameter name. For example :

  double sqrt(double NONNEGATIVE);
  double log(double POSITIVE);

If you have used typedef to change type-names, you can also do this :

  %apply double { Real };       // Make everything defined for doubles
                                // work for Reals.
  Real sqrt(Real NONNEGATIVE);
  Real log(Real POSITIVE);
