Like other subjects like linkers, there probably isn't all that much
literature out there on scripting language binding design. I expect
that studying the design of Tcl, Python and other similar scripting
languages could give you an indication of good design choices and less
good design choices.

In languages like Tcl, a C API is made available for programs in other
languages to interact with the interpreter.
