PyPy directory cross-referenceΒΆ

Here is a fully referenced alphabetical two-level deep directory overview of PyPy:

Directory explanation/links
pypy/bin/ command-line scripts, mainly pypy/bin/
pypy/config/ handles the numerous options for building and running PyPy
pypy/doc/ text versions of PyPy developer documentation
pypy/doc/config/ documentation for the numerous translation options
pypy/doc/discussion/ drafts of ideas and documentation
doc/*/ other specific documentation topics or tools
pypy/interpreter/ bytecode interpreter and related objects (frames, functions, modules,...)
pypy/interpreter/pyparser/ interpreter-level Python source parser
pypy/interpreter/astcompiler/ interpreter-level bytecode compiler, via an AST representation
pypy/module/ contains mixed modules implementing core modules with both application and interpreter level code. Not all are finished and working. Use the --withmod-xxx or --allworkingmodules translation options.
pypy/objspace/ object space implementations
pypy/objspace/std/ the StdObjSpace implementing CPython’s objects and types
pypy/tool/ various utilities and hacks used from various places
rpython/tool/algo/ general-purpose algorithmic and mathematic tools
pypy/tool/pytest/ support code for our testing methods
rpython/annotator/ type inferencing code for RPython programs
rpython/config/ handles the numerous options for RPython
rpython/flowspace/ the FlowObjSpace implementing abstract interpretation
rpython/rlib/ a “standard library” for RPython programs
rpython/rtyper/ the RPython Typer
rpython/rtyper/lltypesystem/ the low-level type system for C-like backends
rpython/memory/ the garbage collector construction framework
rpython/translator/ translation backends and support code
rpython/translator/backendopt/ general optimizations that run before a backend generates code
rpython/translator/c/ the GenC backend, producing C code from an RPython program (generally via the rtyper)
pypy/goal/ our main PyPy-translation scripts live here
rpython/translator/tool/ helper tools for translation
dotviewer/ graph viewer
*/test/ many directories have a test subdirectory containing test modules (see Testing in PyPy)
_cache/ holds cache files from various purposes
