Flat iterator object to iterate over arrays.
A flatiter iterator is returned by x.flat for any array x. It allows iterating over the array as if it were a 1-D array, either in a for-loop or by calling its next method.
Iteration is done in C-contiguous style, with the last index varying the fastest. The iterator can also be indexed using basic slicing or advanced indexing.
A flatiter iterator can not be constructed directly from Python code by calling the flatiter constructor.
>>> x = np.arange(6).reshape(2, 3) >>> fl = x.flat >>> type(fl) <type 'numpy.flatiter'> >>> for item in fl: ... print item ... 0 1 2 3 4 5
>>> fl[2:4] array([2, 3])
|copy(a)||Return an array copy of the given object.|
