I’m trying to learn SciDB and how to use its functionalities using Python. I’ve been using python for some months now, but I have never used Numpy before starting to learn SciDB.
My question is about what Python outputs when I’m trying to check what’s inside a SciDB array. For example, If i use
db.iquery('store(build(<x:int64>[i=0:2], i), foo)')
to create the following array in SciDB
what does the following notation mean in python?
In : db.arrays.foo[:]
array([(0, (255, 0)), (1, (255, 1)), (2, (255, 2))],
dtype=[('i', '<i8'), ('x', [('null', 'u1'), ('val', '<i8')])])
what are the tuples inside the array’s first list and inside dtype?
