General Development Shed Skin is an experimental Python-to-C++ compiler. It can convert many Python programs into optimized C++ code, without any user intervention such as adding type declarations. Its main purpose is to optimize algorithmic-like Python code, by applying advanced global type inference techniques.

Donít get too excited yet. From what I understand this version supports only a C++ like subset of Python (whatever exactly that means) not the whole of Python. As cool as this is, and I really do think it is damn cool, I probably will still take some time before you can use it to convert a Python program that wasnít written with conversion to C++ in mind.
