1 Welcome to Cython!

4 Cython (http://cython.org) is a language that makes writing C extensions for
5 the Python language as easy as Python itself. Cython is based on the
6 well-known Pyrex, but supports more cutting edge functionality and
7 optimizations.
8
9 The Cython language is very close to the Python language, but Cython
10 additionally supports calling C functions and declaring C types on variables
11 and class attributes. This allows the compiler to generate very efficient C
12 code from Cython code.
13
14 This makes Cython the ideal language for wrapping external C libraries, and
15 for fast C modules that speed up the execution of Python code.
