The sandbox code has been removed:
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/changeset/4647
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/changeset/4648
I wasn't sure what to do with a few things:
** A couple of docstrings in scipy/maxentropy/maxentutils.py:
def sparsefeatures(f, x, format='csc_matrix'):
""" Returns an Mx1 sparse matrix of non-zero evaluations of the
scalar functions f_1,...,f_m in the list f at the point x.
If format='ll_mat', the PySparse module (or a symlink to it) must be
available in the Python site-packages/ directory. A trimmed-down
version, patched for NumPy compatibility, is available in the SciPy
sandbox/pysparse directory.
"""
def sparsefeaturematrix(f, sample, format='csc_matrix'):
"""Returns an (m x n) sparse matrix of non-zero evaluations of the scalar
or vector functions f_1,...,f_m in the list f at the points
x_1,...,x_n in the sequence 'sample'.
If format='ll_mat', the PySparse module (or a symlink to it) must be
available in the Python site-packages/ directory. A trimmed-down
version, patched for NumPy compatibility, is available in the SciPy
sandbox/pysparse directory.
"""
And this example scipy/maxentropy/examples/bergerexamplesimulated.py
imports from the sandbox:
from scipy.sandbox import montecarlo
Any ideas about how we should handle these?
Thanks,
