[Numpy-discussion] datetime functionality: questions and requests
Fri Sep 25 02:06:58 CDT 2009
Hi there, Hi Travis,
I have started looking at the new datetime code, with the idea that
we should soon fix (for real) a release date for numpy 1.4.0. I have a
few requests and questions:
- since npy_datetime is conditionally defined to be 64 bits, why not
typedefing it to npy_int64 ?
- there are a few issues w.r.t int/long/npy_datetime used
interchangeably. That's bound to cause trouble on 64 bits architectures.
- For 1.4.0, there needs to be some minimal documentation with some
examples + a few unit tests. In particular, I would like some unit tests
which check for 64 bits issues.
I was thinking about pushing for 1.4.0 in november, which means that
those changes should be hopefully included within mid-october. Is this
