I am now writing a python extension, but I confuse with the reference.
If you care more about working code than fighting confusion, Cython might be worth a look.
Stefan, please stop doing this. This list is about helping people using Python/C, not Cython advocacy.
Where is the difference?
The point is that statements like the above don't help someone who wants (for whatever reason) to learn Python/C. It's perfectly fine to mention Cython as a viable alternative, but not to imply that Python/C is somehow non-functional or that it doesn't result in working code. It's like posting to a C newsgroup telling everyone to use C++ because it's so much better. It may well be better, but there are good reasons why there are separate C and C++ forums. comp.lang.python is a much more appropriate venue for Cython (or boost.python, or PyCXX) advocacy.
