[Numpy-discussion] half-float review/pull request
Wed Nov 17 19:47:58 CST 2010
I've created a ticket and a pull request for the half-float type I
implemented. Since my previous email, I've moved the half implementation
into npymath so modules using numpy can do half-float code as well. There
are a few key things that in my mind should get some discussion before
saying this is final:
* The character code for half. I chose 'j' because 'h' was already taken by
the 16-bit integer type, but maybe there's a reason to choose a different
* The API in npymath (or libndarray once refactoring is merged). I've tried
to make it clean and follow numpy or ieee-754 conventions, but maybe it
could be improved a bit.
Here's the pull request:
