Typically Cython is used to create extension modules for use from Python programs. It is, however, possible to write a standalone programs in Cython. This is done via embedding the Python interpreter with the
This has been implemented--simply run cython with the --embed option and a .c file with a main method is created which sets its module name to
__main__ (just as for normal executable Python scripts). Compile the .c file and link it against the Python library. Starting the resulting binary will then execute the module code.
