I read somewhere that fortran wrapping with cython was coming - dare I ask what the status on this is? Is it a goal for cython to support easy fortran wrapping at all?
Fwrap scans Fortran sources and generate a Cython wrapper around a
iso_c_binding Fortran 2003 wrapper around your Fortran code. Which is a
bit more portable than f2py in theory, although it's pretty much the
same in practice currently.
It doesn't work for all Fortran code, but I think it works for what f2py
does and then some more.
The big difference is that it allows you to sidestep Python boxing of
arguments when calling from Cython.
In addition to the main website (use Google) there's been quite a lot
more work on it my Github:
that's not released. I'd like to continue on Fwrap but there's always
2-3 items higher on the priority list. I can't tell you yet whether the
project will survive.
But anyway, this is the way Fortran+Cython is supported.
