#3340: boost.python.numeric docs out-of-date
 Reporter: stefan | Owner: dave
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.40.0 | Component: Python
  Version: Boost 1.39.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 #array-spec I run into a number of invalid / outdated URLs. Notably, the
 above page starts with

 "Provides access to the array types of Numerical Python's Numeric and
 NumArray modules", but in one of the followup URLs I find

 "numarray is being phased out and replaced by numpy".

 Thus my questions:

 Other than a fix to the above docs, does boost.python need any adjustments
 to work with numpy ? In fact, what is the relationship between the above
 (old) modules and numpy ? Reading some follow-up docs it appears as if the
 numpy array types grew out of Numeric / NumArray.
 Sorry for those somewhat tangential questions. I believe at least some
 clarification on the boost.python documentation as to what exact array
 types it is able to bind to would be very helpful.
