[Numpy-discussion] str/bytes object from arr.data?
Mon Sep 27 08:04:14 CDT 2010
As str objects are supposed to be immutable, I think anything
"official" that makes a string from a numpy array is supposed to copy
the data. But I think you can use ctypes to wrap a pointer and a
length as a python string.
