I am pleased to announce the first public release of f2py 1.116:
Writing Python C/API wrappers for Fortran routines can be a very tedious task, especially if a Fortran routine takes more than 20 arguments but only few of them are relevant for the problems that they solve.
The Fortran to Python Interface Generator, or FPIG for short, is a command line tool (f2py) for generating Python C/API modules for wrapping Fortran 77 routines, accessing common blocks from Python, and calling Python functions from Fortran (call-backs).
The tool can be downloaded from
where you can find also information about f2py features and its User's Guide.
f2py is released under the LGPL license.
