Extending & Embedding Python Using C (I/O Press)
Wednesday, 04 October 2023

This book tells Python programmers everything they need to know about the C API, which is what you use to create a C extension for Python. Mike James explains how to create C extensions, and shows how to use this to make C-based applications and libraries available to Python. He also looks at how to convert Python functions to C to speed things up, and how to work with modules, objects, types and threads.


Mike shows how Python to C gives you so much more power, and is fun too. While the book provides Python developers with a deeper understanding of how Python works, C aficionados will enjoy finding out about some of the clever techniques in use in the C API.
