Generalized flip function
Hi, In PR #7346 we add a flip function that generalizes fliplr and flipud for arbitrary axes. flipud and fliplr reverse the elements of an array along axis=0 and axis=1 respectively. The new flip function reverses the elements of an array along any given axis. In case flip is called with axis=0 or axis=1, the function is equivalent to flipud and fliplr respectively. A similar function is also available in MATLAB™. We use this function in PR #7347 to generalize the rot90 function to rotate an arbitrary plane (defined by the axes argument) of a multidimensional array. By that we fix issue #6506. Because flip function introduces a new API, @shoyer asked us to consult the mailing list. Any objection to adding the generalized flip function? Best regards, C. Eren Sezener & Denis Alevi
If nothing else, this is a nice complement to the generalized `stack` function. Joe On Fri, Feb 26, 2016 at 11:32 AM, Eren Sezener <erensezener@gmail.com> wrote:

I also think this is a good idea  the generalized flip is much more numpythonic than the specialized 2d versions. On Fri, Feb 26, 2016 at 11:36 AM Joseph FoxRabinovitz < jfoxrabinovitz@gmail.com> wrote:
