Cython is a language that makes writing C extensions for the Python
language as easy as Python itself.  Cython is based on the well-known
Pyrex, but supports more cutting edge functionality and
The Cython language is very close to the Python language, but Cython
additionally supports calling C functions and declaring 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 wrapping external C libs,
and for fast C modules that speed up the execution of Python code.
