Hi Nadev,

fft)

Thanks, I'll try it out.
I did, however read before on the differences:
From Numerix http://www.numerix-dsp.com/zoomfft.html:
"One common question is : Is the zoom FFT the same as the chirp
z-transform.
The answer is : Absolutely not. The FFT calculates the FFT at N
equally spaced points around the unit circle in the z-plane, the
chirp z-transform modifies the locations of these points along a
contour that can lie anywhere on the z-plane. In contrast, the
zoom-FFT uses digital down conversion techniques to localise the
standard FFT to a narrow band of frequencies that are centered on a
higher frequency. The chirp z-transform is often used to analyze
signals such as speech, that have certain frequency domain
charactgeristics. The zoom-FFT is used to reduce the sample rate
required when analysing narrowband signals - E.G. in HF
communications."

reading too.
It will be interesting, and the code is appreciated!
Also, czt.c might be particularly fast if compiled with the Intel FFT
lib and weave.blitz().
Again, the goal is increased f resolution within a known small band
for the ~same CPU cycles...
