Pyrex is a programming language that provides C-like performance with syntax similar to Python. The language lets developers write code that resembles Python syntax and semantics but compiles into optimized C code, offering the efficiency of compiled languages while retaining the readability and ease of use typically associated with scripting languages like Python. Pyrex uses type annotations to allow static typing where desired, providing performance improvements without sacrificing generality or programmer productivity. The resulting C code can be incorporated directly into larger projects or used as an extension module for faster execution speeds in performance-critical sections of applications.
