That would be helpful, wouldn't it? The attached script is a modified
version of RealisticInfoArray from
http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/user/basics.subclassing.html . It should
yield the following output:


starting with [0 1 2 3 4]
which is of type <class '__main__.MyArray'>
and has info attribute = "information"
subtracting 3 from [0 1 2 3 4]
subtract calling __array_prepare__ on [0 1 2 3 4] input
output array is now of type <class '__main__.MyArray'>
output array values are still uninitialized:
        [139911601789568        39578752 139911614885536        39254560
              48]
__array_prepare__ is updating info attribute on output
__array_prepare__ finished, subtract ufunc is taking over
subtract calling __array_wrap__ on [0 1 2 3 4] input
output array has initial value: [-3 -2 -1  0  1]
__array_wrap__ is setting output endpoints to 0
yielding [ 0 -2 -1  0  0]
which is of type <class '__main__.MyArray'>
and has info attribute = "new_information"
