The release facility at SourceForge is accessed through the project page, http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy. Click on the "Numarray" release and you will be presented with a list of the available files. The files whose names end in ".tar.gz" are source code releases. The other files are binaries for a given platform (if any are available).
It is possible to get the latest sources directly from our CVS repository using the facilities described at SourceForge. Note that while every effort is made to ensure that the repository is always ``good'', direct use of the repository is subject to more errors than using a standard release.
The source distribution should be uncompressed and unpacked as follows (for example):
gunzip numarray-0.6.tar.gz tar xf numarray-0.6.tar
python setup.py install
python setupall.py install
See numarray-X.XX/Doc/INSTALL.txt for the latest details (X.XX is the version number).
>>> from numarray import *
To install numarray, you need to be in an account with Administrator privileges. As a general rule, always remove (or hide) any old version of numarray before installing the next version.
We have tested Numarrray on several Win-32 platforms including:
C:\> unzip numarray.zip C:\> cd numarray
C:\numarray> python setup.py install
Once you have installed numarray, test it with:
C:\numarray> python Python 2.2.2 (#18, Dec 30 2002, 02:26:03) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32 Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import numarray.testall as testall >>> testall.test() numeric: (0, 1115) records: (0, 48) strings: (0, 166) objects: (0, 72) memmap: (0, 75)
For an installation of numarray for python running on Cygwin, see section 2.3.1.
