+    a.itemset(*args)
+
+    Insert scalar into an array (scalar is cast to array's dtype, if possible)
+
+    There must be at least 1 argument, and define the last argument
+    as *item*.  Then, ``a.itemset(*args)`` is equivalent to but faster
+    than ``a[args] = item``.  The item should be a scalar value and `args`
+    must select a single item in the array `a`.
+
+    Parameters
+    ----------
+    \*args : Arguments
+        If one argument: a scalar, only used in case `a` is of size 1.
+        If two arguments: the last argument is the value to be set
+        and must be a scalar, the first argument specifies a single array
+        element location. It is either an int or a tuple.
+
+    Notes
+    -----
+    Compared to indexing syntax, `itemset` provides some speed increase
+    for placing a scalar into a particular location in an `ndarray`,
+    if you must do this.  However, generally this is discouraged:
+    among other problems, it complicates the appearance of the code.
+    Also, when using `itemset` (and `item`) inside a loop, be sure
+    to assign the methods to a local variable to avoid the attribute
+    look-up at each loop iteration.
+
+    Examples
+    --------
+    >>> x = np.random.randint(9, size=(3, 3))
+    >>> x
+    array([[3, 1, 7],
+           [2, 8, 3],
+           [8, 5, 3]])
+    >>> x.itemset(4, 0)
+    >>> x.itemset((2, 2), 9)
+    >>> x
+    array([[3, 1, 7],
+           [2, 0, 3],
+           [8, 5, 9]])
