  • How to Convert a Float Array to an Integer Array in Python with NumPy

    In this short NumPy tutorial, we are going to learn how to convert a float array to an integer array in Python. Specifically, here we are going to learn by example how to carry out this rather simple conversion task. First, we are going to change the data type from float to integer in a 1-dimensional array. Second, we are going to convert float to integer in a 2-dimensional array. Now, sometimes we may want to round the numbers before we change the data type. Thus, we are going through a couple of examples, as well, in which we 1) round the numbers with the round() method, 2) round the numbers to the nearest largest in with the ceil() method, 3) round the float numbers to the nearest smallest numbers with floor() method. Note, all code can be found in a Jupyter Notebook.

  • Python Import Command

    The import command in Python is used to get access to other modules. Modules are the same as a code library in Java, C, C++, or C#. A module typically involves a set of functions and variables. When we need to include or use these functions of modules in our code, we can simply import the module by using the import command and we can easily invoke the module functions and variables. The import command is the simplest and common way of including modules into your code. Python comes up with many built-in modules that we can include in our code easily. We can also create our module by just saving the Python code file with the .py extension. In this article, we will learn that how we can import our own and built-in modules in Python. Spyder3 editor is used to creating and running the Python scripts.
