Numexpr package evaluates multiple-operator array expressions many
times faster than NumPy can. It accepts the expression as a string,
analyzes it, rewrites it more efficiently, and compiles it to faster
Python code on the fly. It's the next best thing to writing the
expression in C and compiling it with a specialized just-in-time
(JIT) compiler, i.e. it does not require a compiler at runtime.
This is the Python 2 version of the package.
