What’s new in PyTables 1.3.2¶
Ivan Vilata i Balaguer
This document details the modifications to PyTables since version 1.2. Its main purpose is help you ensure that your programs will be runnable when you switch from PyTables 1.2 to PyTables 1.3.2.
Table.Colsaccessor has received a new
__setitem__()method that allows doing things like:
table.cols = record table.cols.x[4:1000:2] = array # homogeneous column table.cols.Info[4:1000:2] = recarray # nested column
Table.itersequence()has changed the default value for the
sortparameter. It is now false by default, as it is not clear if this actually accelerates the iterator, so it is better to let the user do the proper checks (if interested).
