Numeric arrays - initialising with binary data

Hi,

The build in array type has the methods

array.tostring()
array.fromstring()

which make it easy to initialise arrays with binary data
read from a file.

The Numeric array, however, apperantly only has the tostring method.

How can I initialise a Numeric array (eg Float32), with binary data?

I can off course do this by using the Numeric C-API, but I am sure
there must be an easier way.

I am surprised the Numeric array type does not have the same methods
as the build in type, if the intention is in time to replace this
module...

Cheers
Jesper
