From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      Code which is combined with another piece of
     code to determine how that code is executed.  The wrapper
     acts as an interface between its caller and the wrapped code.
     This may be done for compatibility, e.g. if the wrapped code
     is in a different programming language or uses different
     calling conventions, or for security, e.g. to prevent the
     calling program from executing certain functions.  The
     implication is that the wrapped code can only be accessed via
     the wrapper.
