[Numpy-discussion] Using logical function on more than 2 arrays, availability of a "between" function ?
Tue Mar 20 08:05:22 CDT 2012
Well, actually I made a mistake lower... that you may have noticed...
On the faster (your) solution, even with a cleaner use of the out parameter,
the fact that the all has then to be used with parameter axis=0 takes more
time and makes it actually slower than the initial solution...
So I may go for the "multiplier" solution.
