Welcome to Cython!
=================
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
optimizations.
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 libraries, and
for fast C modules that speed up the execution of Python code.

- Documentation: http://docs.cython.org/en/latest/
- Github repository: https://github.com/cython/cython
- Wiki: https://github.com/cython/cython/wiki
### Installation:
If you already have a C compiler, just do
```sh
pip install Cython
```
otherwise, see [the installation page](http://docs.cython.org/en/latest/src/quickstart/install.html).
### LICENSE:
The original Pyrex program was licensed "free of restrictions" (see below).
Cython itself is licensed under the permissive Apache License.
See [LICENSE.txt](https://github.com/cython/cython/blob/master/LICENSE.txt).
### Get the full source history:
Note that Cython used to ship the full version control repository in its source
distribution, but no longer does so due to space constraints. To get the
full source history, make sure you have git installed, then step into the
base directory of the Cython source distribution and type:
```sh
make repo
```
