Dear all,

Is there some way to index the numpy array by specifying arbitrary axis and
arbitrary slice, while
not knowing the actual shape of the data?
For example, I have a 3-dim data, data.shape = (3,4,5)
Is there a way to retrieve data[:,0,:] by using something like
by this way you don't have to know the actual shape of the array.
for for 4-dim data, np.retrieve_data(data,axis=2,slice=0) will actually be

thanks in advance,
