[SciPy-user] How to get rid of nan and Inf

Dear All,
Say that you have an array which represents the time evolution of
certain quantities as time progresses.
Some entries of this array could be ill-defined (coming from a
division by zero or an indefinite error on a linear regression). How
can you automatically get rid of these?
I am looking for something like:

remove_ill_defined=where(array_ill_defined == is_a_number)
array_well_defined=array_ill_defined[remove_ill_defined]

but I do not know the command to identify a number vs an Inf or a nan
(my fictitious is_a_number condition).
Cheers

Lorenzo
