Hi all,
I noticed that Tim Leslie picked up on the out=None in defmatrix.sum:
def sum(self, axis=None, dtype=None, out=None):
"""Sum the matrix over the given axis. If the axis is None, sum
over all dimensions. This preserves the orientation of the
result as a row or column.
"""
return N.ndarray.sum(self, axis, dtype, out=None)._align(axis)
Surely, that out=None should just be out? If out is specified, should
sum() still return a value?
Cheers
Stéfan
