x86 계열에서 메모리 팍팍 쓰면서 속도를 향상시켜준다는,
마법의(!?) JIT(Just In Time) compiler 이다.
결론은.. x86이 아니면 안되는군 ㅠ.ㅠ

 What you can do with it

In short: run your existing Python software much faster, with no change in your source.

Think of Psyco as a kind of just-in-time (JIT) compiler, a little bit like what exists for other languages, that emit machine code on the fly instead of interpreting your Python program step by step. The difference with the traditional approach to JIT compilers is that Psyco writes several version of the same blocks (a block is a bit of a function), which are optimized by being specialized to some kinds of variables (a "kind" can mean a type, but it is more general). The result is that your unmodified Python programs run faster.


    2x to 100x speed-ups, typically 4x, with an unmodified Python interpreter and unmodified source code, just a dynamically loadable C extension module.


    Psyco currently uses a lot of memory. It only runs on Intel 386-compatible processors (under any OS) right now. There are some subtle semantic differences (i.e. bugs) with the way Python works; they should not be apparent in most programs.
