[SciPy-dev] scipy.linalg.qr deprecation warning
Wed Nov 26 07:34:43 CST 2008
when using scipy.linalg.qr without specifying any keyword argument
the user gets the following warning:
DeprecationWarning: qr econ argument will be removed after scipy
0.7. The economy transform will then be available through the
While I appreciate the idea of warning users of future API changes,
I think emitting a warning even if the function has been called without
specifying the "econ" argument is a bit too much. The user may not
even know what "econ" stands for.
What about setting "econ=None" by default and
- if the user specified "econ" explicitly, emit the warning and set
econ according to user preference
- if the user did not specify "econ", set it to the current default,
If no one objects, I will do the needed changes myself tomorrow.
