The Cython programming language acts as glue between Python and C/C++. With the Cython tools, we can compile plain Python code, which is closer to the machine level. The following command will install Cython:
$ pip install cython

$ pip install cytoolz $ pip freeze|grep cytoolz cytoolz==0.7.0
Just as in cooking shows, we will show the results of Cythonizing before going through the process involved (deferred to the next section). The
timeit Python module measures time. We will use this module to measure different functions. Define the following function, which accepts as arguments a short code snippet, a function ...
