#1532: simple numpy example from manual does not work as expected
--------------------+-------------------------------------------------------
Reporter: faheem | Owner: somebody
Type: defect | Status: new
Priority: normal | Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Other | Version: devel
Keywords: |
--------------------+-------------------------------------------------------
The following code is from the Numpy 1.6.0 manual,
[http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy-1.6.0/reference/generated/numpy.chararray.html#numpy.chararray].
I've tested with 1.6.1 on Debian squeeze. There is a similar link in the
development docs
[http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/generated/numpy.chararray.html#numpy.chararray].
{{{
import numpy as np
charar = np.chararray((3, 3))
charar[:, :] = 'abc'
print charar
}}}
According to the manual, this is supposed to output
{{{
chararray([['a', 'a', 'a'],
['a', 'a', 'a'],
['a', 'a', 'a']],
dtype='|S1')
}}}
Instead I get
{{{
[['\xd8' '3' 'U']
['\xb7' '\x18' '\xc2']
['\xbd' '' '\x10']]
}}}
This looks like uninitialized values. I haven't tested to see if I can
reproduce this in the dev version.
