Integer From A Float List?!?

Hello NG,

I was wondering if there is a way to obtain, from a list of floats,
a list of integers without loops. Probably is a basic question, but I can't
find an answer... I have had my eyes blinded by Matlab for years, but now
that I discovered Python+wxPython there seems to be no limit on what one
can do with these 2 tools. Anyway, following the Matlab style, I would like
to do something like this:

matrix = [1.5, 4.3, 5.5]
integer_matrix = int(matrix) (float for Matlab)

(In Matlab, "integer_matrix " is always a double anyway, here I would like
only to show the vector-matrix operation).

Obviously, Python complains about:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<interacti ve input>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: int() argument must be a string or a number

I would like to avoid loops because, having been blinded by Matlab vector-matrix
abilities (and corresponding SLOW for-while loops operations), I tend to
think that also Python will be slow if I use loops.

Does anyone have a suggestion (or maybe could anyone show me that I'm wrong
about loops?)

Thanks you a lot.

I'm pulling a range of cells from Excel into a list and the data in Excel is a number or possibly some text like an asterisk.

It does exactly what it...

Greetings, I have a question about parsing a fixed-width integer from a string. Lines of data are being read from a file having a very strict column-delimited format.

Suppose that I have an integer division problem, but I want the answer was a float. What's the cleanest syntax for that? Example: In this code, the variable z ends up == 0. And that is correct, because this is integer division and the values are trunc'd. No problem. But what's the most elegant code given that x and y have to be ints,...
