#Cython Hints

This package demonstrates some usefull cases how to use cython.

#Where to find what

In demo_cython.pyx there are examples for:

  • common function (cython "precompiled")
  • type safe function (cython "precompiled")
  • use c function from std lib
  • use cpp function from std lib
  • both python and c function (great for a recursion)
  • a "c compiled" function given a python wrapper.

In demo_c.pyx there is an example for external c code used within python.

In demo_cpp.pyx there is an example for external cpp code used within python.

#Example Benchmark

This benchmark is not done in an isolated environment but shows a little how big the velocity improvement can be using cython. The output was generated running show_magic which will run each fibonacci implementation to get the 40th number.
