I recently wanted to cimport sage.rings.number_field.number_field_element_quadratic from the a cython cell in notebook, but was met with gcc compilation errors. This is because that file is a c++ module.

So I am wondering, is there is a way to use the c++ functionality of cython from within a notebook cell?

1) How did you install Sage? (compiling from source, downloading a binary, on a notebook server) 2) Do you have a c++ compiler installed on your system?

Compiled from source (which implies that I have a c++ compiler), I just never really use the notebook interface.

On my installation, in a notebook cell:

cimport sage.rings.number_field.number_field_element_quadratic


[...]code_sage4_spyx_0.c:644:14: error: field ‘__pyx___numerator’ has incomplete type
[...]code_sage4_spyx_0.c:645:13: error: field ‘__pyx___denominator’ has incomplete type
[...]code_sage4_spyx_0.c:1090:13: error: field ‘x’ has incomplete type
[...]code_sage4_spyx_0.c:1356:14: error: field ‘x’ has incomplete type
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

but adding the magic commentbelow (see makes gcc quite happy:

#clang c++
cimport sage.rings.number_field.number_field_element_quadratic
