In [2]: from numpy import *
In [3]: rec.fromarrays(ones(10, dtype=float)
Display all 628 possibilities? (y or n)
In [3]: a = rec.fromarrays([ones(10, dtype=float), ones(10, dtype=int)],
names='float,int', formats=[float, int])
In [4]: a
Out[4]:
recarray([(1.0, 1), (1.0, 1), (1.0, 1), (1.0, 1), (1.0, 1), (1.0, 1),
(1.0, 1), (1.0, 1), (1.0, 1), (1.0, 1)],
dtype=[('float', '>f8'), ('int', '>i4')])
In [6]: a.dtype.names
Out[6]: ('float', 'int')
