Description (last modified by )
To improve support for PARI functions taking closures, it would be very nice if we could wrap an arbitrary Python function in a t_CLOSURE
.
This can be done using the PARI library functions install()
and snm_closure()
.

I tried to implement a variadic version of this, and ran into #18623.
comment:10 Changed 7 years ago by
Two comments on the current implementation:
 I think it is better to use
ulong
instead ofunsigned long
, becauseunsigned long
may be smaller than the size of a pointer (on 64bit Windows maybe?).  The case where the Python function returns
None
is not handled correctly; I propose a/src/sage/libs/pari/closure.pyx +++ b/src/sage/libs/pari/closure.pyx @@@ 65,7 +65,10 @@ cdef inline GEN call_python_func_impl "call_python_func"(GEN* args, object py_fu # Call the Python function r = PyObject_Call(py_func, t, <dict>NULL)  # Convert the result to a gen and copy it to the PARI stack + # Convert the result to a GEN and copy it to the PARI stack, + # treating None specially + if r is None: + return gnil return gcopy(objtogen(r).g) # We rename this function to be able to call it with a different

This looks good to me now. We can always implement a variadic version later, but I think is not a priority at the moment. Also, the most naïve version of this makes the "cube" doctest fail, because even PARI doesn't support variadic functions in apply
:
gp> g(v[..]) = v[1]^3 %1 = (v[..])>v[1]^3 gp> g(2) %2 = 8 gp> apply(g, [1,2,3]) *** at toplevel: apply(g,[1,2,3]) *** ^ *** apply: incorrect type in apply (t_CLOSURE).
(The error only arises because the closure is variadic; nonvariadic closures do work.)
