Does Cython support type names from inttypes.h?

I tried using int32_t or int64_t instead of long or long long, and it wouldn't compile.

What's the syntax sugar? Or are the explicit type names not allowed?

For the intXX_t types, you can do something like the following:


cdef extern from "inttypes.h":
    ctypedef int int64_t  

def foo():
    cdef int64_t num = 10
    printf("num = %d\n", num)

If you look at the generated C code, you'll see something like this is generated:

#include "inttypes.h"
int64_t __pyx_v_num;
__pyx_v_num = 10;
