cf.Constructs.inverse_filter¶

Constructs.
inverse_filter
(depth=None)[source]¶ Return the inverse of previous filters.
By default, the inverse comprises all of the constructs that were not selected by all previously applied filters. If no filters have been applied, then this will result in empty
Constructs
instance being returned.If the depth parameter is set to N then the inverse is relative to the constructs selected by the Nth most recently applied filter.
A history of the filters that have been applied is returned in a
tuple
by thefilters_applied
method. The last element of the tuple describes the last filter applied. If no filters have been applied then the tuple is empty.New in version (cfdm): 1.7.0

 Parameters
 depth:
int
, optional If set to
N
then the inverse is relative to the constructs selected by theN
th most recently applied filter. By default the inverse is relative to the constructs selected by all previously applied filters.N
may be larger than the total number of filters applied, which results in the default behaviour.
 depth:
 Returns
Constructs
The constructs, and their construct keys, that were not selected by the last filter applied. If no filtering has been applied, or the last filter was an inverse filter, then an empty
Constructs
instance is returned.
