Pyrex is Python with C types. It is specially designed to allow you to
write extension modules for Python that have the speed of C and the
simplicity and readability of Python. You write your code in a
Python-like language with C-typed variables, then use the pyrexc
compiler to transform it into a C representation. This is useful for
speeding up critical sections of your Python code or wrapping an
external library.

Please see the documentation for how to get the best performance from
your code.
