Hi,
I'm a long time user of numarray. Now I downloaded numpy for the first
time - and am quite excited to maybe soon being able to use things like
weave !
Thanks for all the good work !
1)
I was following the discussion about dtype with interest, and so it was
one of the first things to check...
>>> repr(aa.dtype)
'dtype('<i4')'
>>> str(aa.dtype)
''<i4''
>>> aa.dtype.name
'int32'
Would it be possible to change str(aa.dtype) to aa.dtype.name ??
I think it would be much more readable !
I'm mainly thinking of (some "less involved") people that just want to
know that it's a '32bit integer' ; '<i4' is quite cryptic !
2)
This is probably more numarray related:
Why does numarray.asarray( numpy.array([1]) ) return a numpy array, not
a numarray ??? This is even true for numarray.array( numpy.array([1]) ) !!
I'll keep exploring...
Thanks,
Sebastian Haase
