Yes, I know about Pyrex. Pyrex defines a Python-like language from
which extension modules are generated but for generating
wrapper functions for Fortran or C programs, I'll need better
control how the extension modules are created. This includes
dealing with converters between Python-C-Fortran types, for instance.
I would consider ExtGen as a tool for programs that
need to generate extension modules.
