** Chapter 1 Intro Deals with just hello world and a simple walk through of your own module from scratch!
** Chatper 2 Cdef and mixing C/Python Here things get more interesting with reusing: - Python ConfigParser - Python logging To extend new C projects to get them up and running FAST
Then iterating over the cdef usage as a reference and the cython public keyword usage and how to handle the new header file.
*** Messaging Server Finally a fairly quick and hacky messaging server written in an hour in C and Cython using libevent over simple Sockets. Demonstrates how to get the most of cython to extend existing systems.
** Chapter 3 Cython Conventions There are 3 parts to this chapter firstly on how to use cython to generate Python'esque classes for your C/C++ types with respect to Memory Management.
*** Memory Such as the dealloc hook when python GC decides to delete your objects. As well as using malloc/sizeof etc from cython in the cinit and str hooks to make it really feel like just any normal python code.
*** Speed Using cython to simply compile your python code to get speed ups in number crunching in the primes example from cython compared to a plain nearly word for word match in pure python
*** Extending Tmux Extending existing Open Source projects using pure Cython instead of using C!
** Chapter 4 Caveats and Debugging This chapter deals with some caveats in Type Conversion you might come across and how to use cygdb on your code.
** Chapter 5 Advanced Cython Advanced topics with cython include using C++ with cython and how to interface with that. And a little intro on how to worry about the GIL releated to threading. And finally 2 more examples on how you could extend systems with cython.
** Chapter 6 Cython extra's Rounding off the book with a discussion on Python 3 and PyPy. And a quick look at the Auto PXD tools for cython that are available.
