Weave provides tools for including C/C++ code within Python code. Inlining C/C++ code within Python generally results in speedups of 1.5x to 30x over algorithms written in pure Python.
Weave is the stand-alone version of the deprecated Scipy submodule
scipy.weave. It is Python 2.x only, and is provided for users that need
new versions of Scipy (from which the
weave submodule may be removed) but
have existing code that still depends on
scipy.weave. For new code, users
are recommended to use Cython.
To install Weave, use of pip is recommended:
pip install weave
To run the tests:
python2 -c "import weave; weave.test('full')"
