Merger proposal[edit]

I just read both articles and they say exactly the same - as Pyrex and Cython apparently do the same. Therefore I think one article is enough. My suggestion would be simply redirecting the Pyrex article to the Cython article as the current text of that reads better in my opinion. What do you think? Is one article for both enough? --Allefant (talk) 09:35, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Cython is a fork of the Pyrex project, and though the relationship is about as amicable as forks get, they are two distinct projects. Robertwb (talk) 22:47, 15 October 2009 (UTC)
Disagree and removed the merge tag (after almost two years!). I wrote up some bits and pieces about the difference between the two at Cython#History. Maybe the references there could be used to expand this page as well. Qwertyus (talk) 11:12, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Python and the C API[edit]

“Python itself only provides a C API to write extension modules”. Is that correct? I would say that this only applies to the CPython implementation but not the programming language itself... Or... Has this something to do with this ctypes? --Nobelium (talk) 16:10, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
