fromfile(fd, dtype=None, shape=None, offset=0, formats=None, names=None, titles=None, aligned=False, byteorder=None)[source]¶
Create an array from binary file data
If file is a string then that file is opened, else it is assumed to be a file object. The file object must support random access (i.e. it must have tell and seek methods).
>>> from tempfile import TemporaryFile >>> a = np.empty(10,dtype='f8,i4,a5') >>> a = (0.5,10,'abcde') >>> >>> fd=TemporaryFile() >>> a = a.newbyteorder('<') >>> a.tofile(fd) >>> >>> fd.seek(0) >>> r=np.core.records.fromfile(fd, formats='f8,i4,a5', shape=10, ... byteorder='<') >>> print(r) (0.5, 10, 'abcde') >>> r.shape (10,)
