- numpy.source(object, output=<open file '<stdout>', mode 'w' at 0x2ac351aa0150>)¶
Print or write to a file the source code for a Numpy object.
The source code is only returned for objects written in Python. Many functions and classes are defined in C and will therefore not return useful information.
object : numpy object
Input object. This can be any object (function, class, module, ...).
output : file object, optional
If output not supplied then source code is printed to screen (sys.stdout). File object must be created with either write ‘w’ or append ‘a’ modes.

The source code is only returned for objects written in Python.
>>> np.source(np.array) Not available for this object.
