The Cython compiler for writing C extensions for the Python language

The Cython language makes writing C extensions for the Python language as easy as Python itself.  Cython is a source code translator based on Pyrex_, but supports more cutting edge functionality and optimizations.

The Cython language is a superset of the Python language (almost all Python code is also valid Cython code), but Cython additionally supports optional static typing to natively call C functions, operate with C++ classes and declare fast C types on variables and class attributes.  This allows the compiler to generate very efficient C code from Cython code.

This makes Cython the ideal language for writing glue code for external C/C++ libraries, and for fast C modules that speed up the execution of Python code.
