[Numpy-discussion] numpy.append and persisting original datatype

After a little more research, I can see that as a work around is:

foo = np.append(foo, np.asanyarray([1., 2., 3.], dtype=foo.dtype))

It seems that within numpy.append(), the call to ravel() (numpy/
function.base.py [line 3490]) produces an array with a dtype that best fits.
In this case it is float64 (when my original array was float32).

Best wishes
