[SciPy-User] Boxcar smoothing of 1D data array...?

Alternatively you could just use scipy.convolve with a tophat kernel ie (for a filter of length N & signal y):

scipy.convolve(y, ones(N)/N)

see the docs for scipy.convolve for more info (you might want to specify how it handles the ends, for example)

You can find various windowing functions like boxcar, hamming and hanning in scipy.signals module.
