Bug#353279: ITP: python-numpy -- Python library that adds a fast array facility to the Python language.
* Package name : python-numpy
Version : 0.9.5
Upstream Author : SciPy Developers <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Description : Python library that adds a fast array facility to the Python language.
This package contains a powerful N-dimensional array
object, sophisticated (broadcasting) functions, tools for integrating
C/C++ and Fortran code, and useful linear algebra, Fourier transform,
and random number capabilities. It derives from the old Numeric code
base and can be used as a replacement for Numeric. It also adds the
features introduced by numarray and can be used to replace numarray.
Numeric users should find the transition very easy. There is a module
(import numpy.lib.convertcode --- see the convertall and fromfile
functions in that module) that can make (most of) the necessary changes
to your Python code that used Numeric to make it work with the new NumPy
This package is needed as the new SciPy version are based on it.
