#367: Startup errors in latest build variable 'as'
 Reporter:  melson      |       Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal      |   Milestone:          
Component:  numpy.core  |     Version:  devel   
 Severity:  normal      |    Keywords:          
 Using Python revision 52498 and numpy revision 3413 I get an error when
 importing numpy:

 me at legion>python setup.py build
 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "setup.py", line 118, in <module>
     import numpy
   File "/home/me/Work/lib/python2.6/site-packages/numpy/__init__.py", line
 36, in <module>
     import core
   File "/home/me/Work/lib/python2.6/site-packages/numpy/core/__init__.py",
 line 10, in <module>
     from numeric import *
   File "/home/me/Work/lib/python2.6/site-packages/numpy/core/numeric.py",
 line 293
     as = a.shape
 SyntaxError: invalid syntax

 It looks like the problem is the use of 'as' as a variable name. I've
 attached a patch changing it to 'a_s'.
