06:45 pm - boost.python vs. Pyrex
Currently CAKE uses Boost.Python to link to the parts that are in C++. I would like to drop this because even though it is very convenient and easy to use Boost in general is a big beast and I don't like having the dependency. For example, it's currently making it pretty hard to work with Python2.5.
In particular, I have a cyrptographic PRNG I've implemented in Python that C++ code needs to be able to call. This looks pretty hard to accomplish in Pyrex, though it seems the nicest of the lot in many ways.
Does anybody have any recommendations?
