[Numpy-discussion] your numpy bug-report -- clamp and percentile
Tue Mar 25 04:47:19 CDT 2008
Hi Connelly !
I saw your bug-report (#626) was closed (as invalid).
[[ I think "invalid" is wrong, since numpy != scipy ]]
<copy of bug report>
Two functions I am continually re-implementing in my own number-crunching
projects are percentile() and clamp(). Here percentile(array, p) returns
the pth percentile of array, using linear interpolation (p=0.5 is median,
p=1.0 is max, p=0.25 is lower quartile, etc). And clamp(array, lo, hi)
clamps to lower and upper bound scalars.
Would these functions be appropriate for numpy? Will you accept patches?

If someone wants to not "rely" on scipy , then the precentile would
still be missing .....
(And I also have a C implementation for *inplace* clamp (clip) )
Would you mind sending me the code you use for those functions ?
