The purpose of the F2PYFortran to Python interface generator– project is to provide a connection between Python and Fortran languages. F2PY is a Python package (with a command line tool f2py and a module f2py2e) that facilitates creating/building Python C/API extension modules that make it possible

  • to call Fortran 77/90/95 external subroutines and Fortran 90/95 module subroutines as well as C functions;
  • to access Fortran 77 COMMON blocks and Fortran 90/95 module data, including allocatable arrays

from Python. See F2PY web site for more information and installation instructions.
