I have data which has a very particular format that I'm trying to store in a numpy array.
avi_05MSalt00001.txt 2012 Feb 07 20:12:41 50000 (usec) 300 10
I've defined the following numpy datatype:
timefile_dtype=numpy.dtype([ ('filename', file), ('year', int), ('month', str), #Why don't these work? ('day', int), ('time', str), ('int_time', int), ('unit', str), ('avg', int), ('boxcar', int), ])
The output looks like this:'
('avidin_in_water00349.txt', 2012, '', 29, '', 50000, '', 300, 10)
Is it possible for numpy to store these string variables? If so, am I doing something wrong? I like the swiftness of this method rather than making my own list of lists...
