[Numpy-discussion] Community Poll: numarray default underflow handling == "ignore" ?

Thanks for your reply and yes, I would be very interested to see more of
your "pretty print" code.
I am trying to put together all kinds of useful things to make python ( with
numarray and scipy) a possible replacement for Matlab...
I am not hoping for a similarly big documentation and help system, but just
the fact that it's free ( doesn't need to connect to a "license server"
every other minute) and that it happily supports single-precision arrays
( not to mention memmap array !) should make it interesting.
I know that I probably should use IPython, but I also run python embedded in
a wxWindows app and therefore use pyCrust.
