Hi,

Just ran into this:

>>> np.__version__
'1.5.1'
>>> np.empty((1,), dtype='>h2')  # works in 1.6.2 too
array([0], dtype=int16)

>>> np.__version__
'1.7.0.dev-fd78546'
>>> np.empty((1,), dtype='>h2')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: data type ">h2" not understood


Seems like a quite serious issue. It breaks scipy.io.netcdf for example.

Ralf
