[Numpy-discussion] float** arrays and Numarray

I use Numeric to transfer images between various image processing 
systems. Numarray includes most of the image data memory layouts that I 
have seen except for:

Some C types need to be added (as several people have already commented).

Some systems define an array as a "pointer to an array of pointers to 
...". "Numerical Recipes in C" explains this approach clearly. Could 
this perhaps be implemented in Numarray as a buffer interface with 
multiple data segments?

Thanks,
Ed Jones
