[Numpy-discussion] NumPy Glossary: a request for review

Hi Sasha,
A couple of points:

Stride
       The distance (in bytes) between the two concecutive elements 
along an axis.

Stride isn't the distance in bytes is it?  Isn't it just the index 
increment or alternatively the distance in terms of the multiplier of 
the word length of the contained type. Also, a slight typo: concecutive 
-> consecutive.


Record
       A composite element of an array similar to C struct.

This implies that you can contain different types in a record, which I 
think is only true if you have an object array.

Everything else looks OK.
