<p>An increasingly popular approach to scientific computing is to combine python and compiled modules. Such an approach merges the high performance typically found in compiled routines with the interface flexible, scalable, and easy-to-learn interpreted language. Although using c to hand-code extensions python binds the latter to a given compiled asset in C++, programmers who used C++'s more advanced features until recently) lacked the automated support available Fortran and C.</p>
