       cython - compile python-like .pyx file to C for use as python module


       cython  files...


       This  manual  page  documents  briefly the cython command.  This manual
       page was written for  the  Debian  distribution  because  the  original
       program does not have a manual page.

       cython  is a python script that converts a .pyx file to C, so it can be
       compiled for use as a Python module.

       You then need to compile the .c file along with the include  files  for
       Python, and link it into a shared library.

       The HTML documentation explains this better, and the Demo examples show
       how to automate the compile and link stages more easily.


       This manual page was written by Peter  Harris  <>,
       for  the  Debian  GNU/Linux  system (but may be used by others) and the
       pyrex package.  Modified by Ondrej Certik  <>  for  the
       Cython package.
