[Numpy-discussion] indexing bug?

Looks like it truncates to an int.  But I wouldn't do
it especially if you use floating operations (+,*,/,
etc.) since what you get may not truncate to the
integer you expect.  Remember floats are approximate
representations for many rational numbers.  Stick with
integers, IMHO.

-- Lou Pecora,   my views are my own.
