[SciPy-user] Arrayfns in numpy?

Thanks for the reply.

I don't want to depend on scipy for a small task like this. I want to keep
dependencies small.

I looked at the searchsorted function, but don't see how it would be useful.
My data is not regularly spaced. It is X-ray diffraction data in which each
intensity has been shifted slightly. I am currently using arrayfns from
Numeric to get data with regular spacing. Could you give more information on
how to interpolate the data? I don't know where to start.

As an aside, here's some things in Numeric that aren't in numpy. Is this
oversight, or are there no plans to implement them?
1. arrayfns module
2. UserArray module with UserArray class (comparible to UserDict, UserList).

Kind regards,
