NumPy: Convert a given array into bytes, and load it as array

NumPy: Basic Exercise-38 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to convert a given array into bytes, and load it as array.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import numpy as np
import os
a = np.array([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6])
print("Original array:")
print(a)
a_bytes = a.tostring()
a2 = np.fromstring(a_bytes, dtype=a.dtype)
print("After loading, content of the text file:")
print(a2)
print(np.array_equal(a, a2))

Sample Output:

Original array:
[1 2 3 4 5 6]
After loading, content of the text file:
[1 2 3 4 5 6]
True
