Description : Python module providing a NumPy-compatible lazily-evaluated array
The 'larray' class is a NumPy-compatible numerical array where operations on
the array (potentially including array construction) are not performed
immediately, but are delayed until evaluation is specifically requested.
Evaluation of only parts of the array is also possible. Consequently,
use of an 'larray' can potentially save considerable computation time
and memory in cases where arrays are used conditionally, or only parts of an
array are used (for example in distributed computation, in which each MPI node
operates on a subset of the elements of the array).
This is basically a single file package with a number of tests (98%
coverage). This package will be needed for a new release of python-pynn.
Debian has 0.7.0 right now, latest upstream is 0.7.2
