im a python newbie, i have a few questions. i am attempting to write
some numerical code (high dimensional monte carlo integration) using
python, to see how it performs and to learn the language. at the numpy
sourceforge, it appears there are 2 versions, numarray 0.5 and Numeric
23. numeric 23 installed on my machine (slackware9) but numarray
complained about some filename etc.
1. the readme says that previous version of numarray must be removed,
is it referring to Numeric also?
2. which package should i use?
im primarily interested in speed, need linear algebra routines (least
squares), and dont want to encounter
too many bugs. seeing as numarray .5 already ran into some trouble, im
leaning towards Numeric 23, since 23 > .5, but if Numeric is being
abandoned, then perhaps its better to go with numarray.
3. whats the status of these projects?
thanks for any info!
