OOPS! I replied to an arbitray message to get the address,and I forgot to change the subject, so here is the same message I just posted, but with an appropriate subject.
The MATLAB Digest just put out a little article about array indexing in MATLAB. I thought some of yo might find it interesting, and it might give some ideas for NumPy2. Most of what MATLAB has, NumPy has an equivalent, but I would love to see what matlab calls vector indexing, and a more natural way to do masks.
I know vector indexing would be a pretty tricky thing to have work, at least with slices being references and all, but it would be a very nice thing!! Perhaps some brilliant person can figure out an elegant and efficient way to do it.
Here is where you will find the article:
