Project Description

Introduction

The arrayfunc module provides high speed array processing functions for use with the standard Python array module. These functions are patterned after the functions in the standard Python Itertools module together with some additional ones from other sources.

The purpose of these functions is to perform mathematical calculations on arrays faster than using native Python.


Functions

Summary

The functions fall into several categories.

Filling Arrays

Function Description
count Fill an array with evenly spaced values using a start and step values.
cycle Fill an array with evenly spaced values using a start, stop, and step values, and repeat until the array is filled.
repeat Fill an array with a specified value.

Filtering Arrays

Function Description
afilter Select values from an array based on a boolean criteria.
compress Select values from an array based on another array of boolean values.
dropwhile Select values from an array starting from where a selected criteria fails and proceding to the end.
takewhile Like dropwhile, but starts from the beginning and stops when the criteria fails.

Examining and Searching Arrays

Function Description
aany Returns True if any element in an array meets the selected criteria.
aall Returns True if all element in an array meet the selected criteria.
amax Returns the maximum value in the array.
amin Returns the minimum value in the array.
findindex Returns the index of the first value in an array to meet the specified criteria.
findindices Searches an array for the array indices which meet the specified criteria and writes the results to a second array. Also returns the number of matches found.

Operating on Arrays

Function Description
amap Apply an operator to each element of an array, together with an optional second parameter (for operators taking two parameters). The results are written to a second array.
amapi Like amap, but the results are written in place to the input array.
starmap Like amap, but where a second array acts as the second parameter. The results are written to an output array.
starmapi Like starmap, but the results are written in place to the first input array.
asum Calculate the arithmetic sum of an array.
acalc Calculate arbitrary equations over an array.

Amap and amapi support more than 70 different operations. Starmap and starmapi support more than two dozen different operations. ACalc supports more than 50 operations.

Data Conversion

Function Description
convert Convert arrays between data types. The data will be converted into the form required by the output array.

Attributes

In addition to functions, a set of attributes are provided representing the platform specific maximum and minimum numerical values for each array type. These attributes are part of the “arraylimits” module.


Supported Array Types

Arrayfunc supports all standard Python 3.x array types, as well as the ‘bytes’ type.


Performance

Performance will vary depending on the function, operation, array data type used, and whether overflow checking is enabled.

Average performance increase for amap is 80 times faster than native Python. Functions other than amap, starmap, and acalc average is 50 times faster than native Python. However, some functions and operations may be more than 200 to 300 times faster than native Python.

Detailed performance figures are listed in the documentation.


Platform support

Arrayfunc is written in ‘C’ and uses the standard C libraries to implement the underlying math functions. Arrayfunc has been tested on the following platforms.

OS Bits Compiler Python Version Tested
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit GCC 3.4
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bit GCC 3.5
Debian 8 32 bit GCC 3.4
FreeBSD 10 64 bit LLVM 3.4
MS Windows 10 32 bit MS Visual Studio C 2010 3.4

Some amap, amapi, and acalc operations are not supported on MS Windows due to lack of compiler support. See the documentation for details.
