how would one go about finding the minimum value in an array of 100 floats in python?
I have tried
print darr[minindex] with
import numpy (darr is the name of the array)
but i get:
AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'argmin'
what might be the problem? is there a better alternative?
thanks in advance
If you want to use numpy, you must define
darr to be a numpy array, not a
import numpy as np darr = np.array([1, 3.14159, 1e100, -2.71828]) print(darr.min())
darr.argmin() will give you the index corresponding to the minimum.
The reason you were getting an error is because
argmin is a method understood by numpy arrays, but not by Python
