[SciPy-dev] NumPy f2py GSOC project
Thu Mar 26 12:51:03 CDT 2009
I still don't understand how you'll test the py3k version of f2py if numpy
is not ported first ? I would have thought the first step in porting numpy
would be to port the ndarray type and its methods. But maybe that's already
too ambitious for a gsoc ?

> I've done some looking at what will be required for the project.
> 1. port f2py to Cython (Py3k).
> a. begin porting the C code to python, without worrying about
> speed-ups. Instead focusing on proper runtime behavior
> b. ask community to help with providing fortran code to test proper
> runtime behavior.
> c. develop small test suit of fortran/python code for problem cases.
> d. Fix major bugs introduced from porting.
> e. Document code, (docstrings)
> f. Beginning modifying code for speedier execution
> Midterm eval:
> a. Have f2py code all ported to Cython and compiling.
> b. Have at least 5 tests written and working in ported code.
> Final Eval
> a. Major bugs found during the summer squashed.
> b. f2py compiling and running as expected for all test cases.
> c. Documentation completed for Cython code.
> I'd happily stay on to bugfix once the summer is done. I'd still be a
> student so my availability would be limited at times.
> Comments ans Suggestions, as always, are welcome.
