[Numpy-discussion] difference between dtypes

Is there an explanation somewhere of what different basic dtypes mean,
across platforms and python versions?

>>> np.bool8
<type 'numpy.bool_'>
>>> np.bool_
<type 'numpy.bool_'>
>>> bool
<type 'bool'>

Are there any rules and recommendations or is it all folks lore?

I'm asking because my intuition picked up by osmosis might be off, and I
is weird (i.e. counter intuitive).

Deprecation warnings are always a lot of fun, especially if
"This log is too long to be displayed. Please reduce the verbosity of your
build or download the raw log."
