cfdm.Array¶

class
cfdm.
Array
(source=None, copy=True)[source]¶ Bases:
cfdm.data.mixin.arraymixin.ArrayMixin
,cfdm.mixin.container.Container
,cfdm.core.data.abstract.array.Array
Abstract base class for a container of an underlying array.
The form of the array is defined by the initialisation parameters of a subclass.
New in version (cfdm): 1.7.0
Initialisation
 Parameters
 source: optional
Convert source, which can be any type of object, to a
Array
instance.All other parameters, apart from copy, are ignored and their values are instead inferred from source by assuming that it has the
Array
API. Any parameters that can not be retrieved from source in this way are assumed to have their default value.Note that if
x
is also aArray
instance thencfdm.Array(source=x)
is equivalent tox.copy()
. copy:
bool
, optional If True (the default) then deep copy the input parameters prior to initialisation. By default the parameters are not deep copied.
