# numarray question

I tried to initialize a float point array by:

import numarray
xur = numarray.fromfu nction(lambda x,y,z:x*y*z, (2, 2, 2))

but I ended up with an integer array even though x, y, and z are all floats.

BTW, how do you unzip NumTut in windows? And is there a newer version?

Thank you
Howard

You might try something like:

import numarray
xyz= lambda x,y,z:x*y*z
xur = numarray.fromfu nction(xyz, (6, 6, 3))
print xur

You probably meant

xyz = lambda x,y,z: float(x*y*z)

or maybe even

xyz = lambda x,y,z: float(x)*float( y)*float(z)

Jean,

You are right, I overlooked SunX's wish to have a Float array.

Unfortunately, numarray assumes that the source is based in
the function indices, which delivers an Int array.

Thus, your suggestion raises an exception. An alternative
is given below.

Colin W.

import numarray
xyz= lambda x,y,z: x*y*z
# This raises an exception
##xur = numarray.fromfu nction(xyz, (6, 4, 3))
## File "C:\Python23\Li b\site-packages\numarr ay\numarraycore .py", line
715, in __float__
## raise TypeError, "Only rank-0 numarray can be cast to floats."
# This gets around that problem
ind= numarray.indice s(shape= (6, 4, 3), type= numarray.Float)
xur= apply(xyz, ind)
print xur
