It seems that what I advertised before as Pyrex 0.3.1
was the wrong version. The correct one should be there
> Pyrex 0.3.1 is now available:
> Some fairly major problems with the new extension
> types facility have been fixed.
> There are also some new features:
> - Default argument values, * and ** arguments are
> now supported in Pyrex-defined Python functions.
> - External C functions with variable argument
> lists can be declared and called.
> - Full C type declaration syntax now supported,
> including pointer-to-function types.
> - More special methods for extension types:
> __delitem__, __delslice__, __getattr__,
> __setattr__, __delattr__
> - ctypedef statement.
> - String literal handling improved (triple
> quoted strings, escape sequences in strings
> should now work).
> - Hex, octal and imaginary literals.
> - Docstrings.
> What is Pyrex?
> Pyrex is a new language for writing Python extension modules.
> It lets you freely mix operations on Python and C data, with
> all Python reference counting and error checking handled
