What is the plan for the future development of Numerical Python? For
example, will additional special functions be included in numpy, or is
NumPy to be a building block for other applications? I guess the big
question is "Will Numerical Python become a complete computing
environment like Matlab or IDL?"
There is an interesting series of article on Numerical Python by Eric
Hagemann on O'Reilly network (www.oreillynet.com) where Eric Hagemann
is using NumPy with other python modules as a computing environment
more than as a software development framework.
I think NumPy could become a lot like the development of linux. Linux
strictly speaking is only the operating system kernel. However, a
linux system has come to includes a whole set of packages that work
together to make up a whole system.
