hack2 / pypyembed / README

This is an incredibly gross hack. It embeds pypy built with --shared with
cpython for numpy computations. Right now it does leak refcounts (as it's really
just a prove of concept), so don't use it.

The main exported function is embed.export_function (demo can be seen in It exports the function (with it's source, but without links
to globals, so you need to reimport everything) and runs it under pypy.

Right now you can pass ints, floats and numpy arrays to the underlaying
function. Only what is tested in test/ is known to be working.

To reproduce either download pypy binary (64bit linux) from:


or just compile pypy (from branch pypy-in-a-box) with a command:

cd <pypy-checkout>/pypy/translator/goal
./ -Ojit --gcrootfinder=shadowstack --shared --translationmodules --withmod-micronumpy --objspace-std-withembeddingapi

All those options are needed, except --translationmodules which enables
less modules and thus makes the translation faster.

Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
