Hi all

What is the equivalent to IDL its help function, e.g.

IDL> a = make_array(23,23,)

IDL> help,a 

will result in:

A               FLOAT     = Array[23, 23]


IDL> a = create_struct('idl',23)

IDL> help,a


A               STRUCT    = -> <Anonymous> Array[1]


I have been looking for it ever since using numpy. It would make my life so much easier.

Thanks, Siegfried
