11115,Rewrite cached_method in Cython,SimonKing,jason,"Broadening the original description of the ticket:
The aim is to provide a Cython version of the cached_method decorator. There are three benefits:
1)
Speed (see timings in the comments)
2)
Using cached methods in Cython code.
3) Parent and element methods of categories
Let me elaborate on the last point:
In order to make full use of the parent and element methods of a category, it should be possible to define a ''cached'' method in the category, so that any object of that category inherits it ''with caching''.
Currently, it fails as follows:
{{{
sage: class MyCategory(Category):
....: def super_categories(self):
....: return [Objects()]
....: class ParentMethods:
....: @cached_method
....: def f(self, x):
....: return x^2
....:
sage: cython(""""""from sage.structure.parent cimport Parent
....: cdef class MyClass(Parent): pass
....: """""")
sage: O = MyClass(category=MyCategory())
sage: O.f(4)
16
sage: O.f(x) is O.f(x)
False
}}}
So, the method is inherited, but not cached.

Note that, if you want to '''remove''' the patches after testing them, you need to do
{{{
rm $SAGE_ROOT/devel/sage/build/sage/misc/cachefunc.*
rm $SAGE_ROOT/devel/sage/build/*/sage/misc/cachefunc.*
}}}
Otherwise, `sage -br` would not work.",enhancement,closed,major,sage-5.0,misc,fixed,category cython cache,nthiery,sage-5.0.beta0,Simon King,"Nicolas M. Thiéry, Andrey Novoseltsev, Volker Braun",N/A,,,,"#9138, #11900",
