[Numpy-discussion] Cython: Passing numpy array into C via buffer?
Fri Sep 26 05:33:10 CDT 2008
Forgive me if this is a stupid question, I've been looking around all
the Cython documentation and I can't find out if this is possible.
What I would like to do is generally is wrap a C function that takes a
double array, and be able to pass in a numpy array, I was wondering if
it's possible to do this using the buffer interface? I understand I
could do it using this method (http://wiki.cython.org/WrappingNumpy),
but the buffer interface seems much neater.
Specifically, I have a C function that I would like to wrap with signature:
double do_something(double * array, int len);
I was hoping with the buffer interface, I could do something like this:
cdef extern from "cfile.h"
double do_something(double * array, int len)
cdef do_something_python(numpy.ndarray[numpy.float64, ndim = 1] numarr):
cdef double x
cdef double * data
cdef int l
data = ... # Not sure what to do here
l = numarr.shape
x = do_something(data, l)
The above probably doesn't work for many reasons (I've just jotted it
down), but the think I can't figure out is what to do at the "data =
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
