[Numpy-discussion] loadtxt and genfromtxt
Wed Feb 10 11:36:52 CST 2010
I am new to python/numpy/scipy and new to this list. I recently
migrated over from using Octave and am very impressed so far!
Recently I needed to load data from a text file and quickly found
numpy's "loadtxt" function. However, there were missing data values,
which loadtxt does not handle. After some amount of googling, I did
find "genfromtxt" which does exactly what I need. It would have been
helpful if genfromtxt was included in the "See Also" portion of the
docstring for loadtxt. Perhaps this is a simple oversight? I see that
genfromtxt does mention loadtxt in its docstring.
Let me know if I should submit a bug somewhere, or if it is sufficient
to mention this small item on the list.
My first send did not seem to go through. Trying again; sorry if this
is posted twice...
