[Numpy-discussion] Floating Point Difference between numpy and numarray
Wed Sep 3 05:43:34 CDT 2008
Also can you think of a way either dtype is always float64? I have a lot of
functions and to add dtype='float64' would require *loads* of testing,
whereas if I can set it centrally on the matrix or in the environment that
would be so much easier.
