for use in binary distribution where I need only basics and fast startup/low memory footprint, I try to isolate the minimal ndarray type and what I need..
with "import numpy" or "import numpy.core.multiarray" almost the whole numpy package tree is imported, _dotblas etc. cxFreeze produces some 10MB numpy baggage (4MB zipped)
yet when copying and using the multiarray DLL only, I can create arrays, but he most things fail:
import multiarray x=multiarray.array([5,6]) x+x
Traceback (most recent call last): File "<interactive input>", line 1, in <module> TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'numpy.ndarray' and 'numpy.ndarray'
while this works:
array([ 6, 18])
I added some things from core.__init__.py like this:
import umath import _internal # for freeze programs import numerictypes as nt multiarray.set_typeDict(nt.sctypeDict) ..
but the problem of failed type self-recognition remains. What is this? What to do?
