Description : Psyco, a python specializing compiler
Psyco lets you run your existing Python software much faster, with no
change in your source.
Think of Psyco as a kind of just-in-time (JIT) compiler, a little
bit like Java's, that emit machine code on the fly instead of
interpreting your Python program step by step. The result is that
your unmodified Python programs run faster.
The plan for the next release is to include a fast low-level
interpreter that can be used on non-Intel processors. It will
finally make Psyco portable -- althought of course not as fast as it
could possibly be if it could emit real machine code. Right now, only
the i386 architecture is supported.
Packages for python2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 will be provided.
