What is a PYX file?
A PYX file is a source code file written in Pyrex, a Python-like language used for writing Python extension modules with C-like syntax. It may contain references to existing C modules. PYX files are used to speed up the execution of Python programs.
Since Pyrex is used for writing modules for Python software, PYX files may sometimes be found with Python applications.
NOTE: Cython is an extension of Pyrex that contains several enhancements. Developers often prefer Cython to Pyrex.
