[Numpy-discussion] single precision version of interp

As I've previously mentioned to Paul, I need a single precision version
of 'interp()', so I can use it on large single precision arrays, without
returning a double precision array.
In my own copy of NumPy, I've written such a routine, and added it to
'arrayfns.c '. Naturally, I want to see this functionality built into
the official release, so I do not have to apply my own patches to new
Can we decide how such single precision needs are accomodated? Should
there be a keyword argument on the 'interp()' call, that calls the
single precision version? Or should the caller invoke 'interpf()',
rather than 'interp()?'
I don't much care what the solution looks like, as long as people agree
1) we need such functionality in NumPy.
2) we can establish a precedent on how single precision vs double
precision methods are invoked.
Please let me know your opinions on how this should be resolved.
