[SciPy-User] scipy.stats example code with numargs

Examples of the use of distributions in scipy documentation start with with something like this:

>>> from scipy.stats import truncnorm
>>> numargs = truncnorm.numargs
>>> [ a, b ] = [0.9,] * numargs
>>> rv = truncnorm(a, b)

What does this do?  Why 0.9?  In this particular case it seems to make no sense: the standard normal truncated between 0.9 and 0.9.  Or am I way off base?

Thanks, Henry Harpending
