r_ and c_ were in SciPy and have been there for several years.
For NumPy, c_ has been deprecated (but not removed because it is used in
The functionality of c_ is in r_ so it doesn't add anything.
The purpose of it is as a "convenience function" so you can build arrays
from the command line very quickly (which is easier in MATLAB). They
were added while I was teaching a course in Signal Processing and was
porting some MATLAB-written labs to SciPy.
There is going to be overlap with long-name functions because of
this. I have not had time to review Bill's suggestions yet --- were
they filed as a ticket? A ticket is the best way to keep track of
issues at this point.
