[Numpy-discussion] Shared memory ndarrays (update)

Hi everyone,

  I was looking up the options that are available for shared memory arrays
and this thread came up at the right time. The doc says that multiprocessing
.Array(...) gives a shared memory array. But from the code it seems to me
that it is actually using a mmap. Is that correct a correct assessment, and
if so, is there any advantage in using multiprocessing.Array(...) over
simple numpy mmaped arrays.

Regards
