Tue, 28 Aug 2001 12:04:21 +0000
Would it be possible to add to f2py a directive indicating that a wrapped
module is thread-safe. This directive would instruct f2py to insert
2. Calling C-libraries.
For simple C-libraries it is possible to use f2py. However, this seems to
only work if all of the arguments to the C-function are pointers.
Is there any way to add to f2py a directive that instructs f2py to build a
module that is intended to call a C-library, so that scalar arguments are
passed directly by value in the function call.
3. Using a different Python name.
This has been discussed on this list before. But, it would be really useful
to be able to rename the Python-determined function. There are many ways to
do this but it would be useful if some meaningful directive were added to the
4. f2py directives
I noticed that there is some support in crackfortran for f2py directives.
When are these used currently. I've been assuming that some of the requested
features could be inserted as f2py directives, but perhaps I misunderstand
