[Numpy-discussion] performance issue (again)
Tue Apr 21 16:58:03 CDT 2009
I posted something about this earlier
Say I have 2 arrays X and Y with shapes (N,3) where N is large
I am doing the following
for row in range(N):
result=polyfit(X[row,:],Y[row,:],1,full=True) # fit 3 points with a line
This takes forever and I was hoping to find a way to speed things up.
But now I'm starting to wonder if this pointless. If the routine "poly
fit takes a long time, when compared with the time for a Python
function call, then things can't be sped up.
