You don't say what array package you are using. I presume numpy. In any case,
the place to ask those questions (even for the older numarray and Numeric
packages) is the numpy list.

We will need some more information from you when you come to the numpy list.
Please reduce your problematic code to the smallest, self-contained script that
demonstrates the problem, and post it and the exact output that you get.
