I've been doing a *lot* of playing with numpy over the last several
days, so expect various observations to trickle from my abode over the
next week or so. Here's the first installment.
* tostring probably needs the order flag. I think you want the string
generated from a multidimensional array in Fortran and C order to differ.
* With the evolution of the order flag, ascontiguousarray is probably
redundant, scarcely after it was added.
b = asarray(a, order="C")
Is actually clearer in intent than:
b = ascontiguousarray(a)
Does the latter leave a contiguous, Fortran order array alone? That's
probably almost never what one wants. Unless your working with Fortran
arrays, in which case the opposite ambiguity applies.
