What is a 'wrapper' program?

I have seen references to website/API ‘wrappers’ on the forums. What are they?

Hi @PythonAnaconda !
Could you cite an example? It would help clarify your question a bit more.
Thanks!

this might be the answer:
Wrappers in Python are functions or classes that encapsulate — or ‘wrap’, as you will — the behavior of another function . They provide a layer around the original functionality, allowing to modify or extend behavior without altering the core implementation.

“‘Char.ai’ Character.AI Wrapper”

It’s essentially a program which allows users to access something, such as Character.AI (a non-python program) using a different interface (such as the python language).

Another example is discord.py, which allows you to access discord using Python.
