Set operations in Numeric

Is there a way to handle numeric (or numarray or numpy) arrays as sets
and compute efficiently their intersection, union, etc. ? I hope there
is a faster way than s = array(set(A) & set(B)). Can this be done with
masked arrays maybe ? I've never used them though and browsing through
the docs didn't make clear if it is possible.

Thanks,
George

You'll probably want to ask such questions on the numpy list:

http://www.scipy.org/Mailing_Lists

Robert Cimrman has implemented a number of set operations based on sorting.

Thank you so much, these fit the bill perfectly !

Numarray is making great progress and is quite usable for many purposes. An idea that was championed by some is that the Numeric code base would stay static and be replaced entirely by Numarray. However, Numeric is currently used in a large installed base. In particular SciPy uses Numeric as its core array. While no doubt numarray arrays will be supported in the future, the speed of the less bulky Numeric arrays and the typical case...

Hi, I have a tricky problem with Numeric. Some time ago, I have generated a huge and complex data structure, and stored it using the cPickle module. Now I want to evaluate it quickly again on a workstation cluster with 64-Bit Opteron CPUs - I have no more than three days to do this. Compiling Python and running Numeric has been no problem at all. However, I get an error message when accessing the data pickled before. (I can load it...

table `user` --------------------------------------- | id | user_name | gender | --------------------------------------- I can gurantee that ids in table user are unique (so each number correspond at most one row in the table). I have two questions 1) can I somehow do away with mysql_fetch_array($result);? 2) If i use $sql_query = "SELECT user_name from `user` WHERE (id = '$id')"; to replace line (1), do I get some better performance

Hi, I have been playing with set operations lately and came across a kind of surprising result given that it is not mentioned in the standard Python tutorial: with python sets, intersections and unions are supposed to be done like this: In :set('casa') & set('porca') Out:set() In :set('casa') | set('porca')

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.
