[Numpy-discussion] patching docs

Actually, if I look here:
http://docs.scipy.org/numpy/docs/numpy.core.fromnumeric.put/

The text that appears in by browser is:

*put(a, ind, v, mode='raise')*

Changes specific elements of one array by replacing from another array.

The indexing works on the flattened target array,
put<http://docs.scipy.org/numpy/docs/numpy.core.fromnumeric.put/#put>is
roughly equivalent to:

for i, val in zip(ind, v):
    x.flat[i] = val


Am I missing something obvious????

cheers,
William
