Pyccel stands for Python extension language using accelerators.
The aim of Pyccel is to provide a simple way to generate automatically, parallel low level code. The main uses would be:
- Convert a Python code (or project) into a Fortran or C code.
- Accelerate Python functions by converting them to Fortran or C functions.
Pyccel can be viewed as:
- Python-to-Fortran/C converter
- a compiler for a Domain Specific Language with Python syntax
Pyccel comes with a selection of extensions allowing you to convert calls to some specific Python packages to Fortran/C
