cdecimal is a fast drop-in replacement for the decimal module in PythonвЂ™s standard library. Both modules provide complete implementations of the General Decimal Arithmetic Specification.
Typical performance gains are between 30x for I/O heavy benchmarks and 80x for numerical programs. In a database benchmark, cdecimal exhibits a speedup of 12x over decimal.py.
System Requirements:Cdecimal has been tested with all Python versions from 2.5 up to 3.2 on these platforms:
64/32-bit Linux, 64/32-bit FreeBSD and OpenBSD, 64/32-bit Windows, 64-bit AIX, 32-bit OpenSolaris and 32-bit Debian Mips.
