WrightTools.data.Variable

class WrightTools.data.Variable(parent, id, units=None, **kwargs)[source]

Variable.

__init__(parent, id, units=None, **kwargs)[source]

Variable.

Parameters
  • parent (WrightTools.Data) – Parent data object.

  • id (h5py DatasetID) – Dataset ID.

  • units (string (optional)) – Variable units. Default is None.

  • kwargs – Additional keys and values to be written into dataset attrs.

Methods

__init__(parent, id[, units])

Variable.

argmax()

Index of the maximum, ignorning nans.

argmin()

Index of the minimum, ignoring nans.

astype(dtype)

Get a context manager allowing you to perform reads to a different destination type, e.g.:

chunkwise(func, *args, **kwargs)

Execute a function for each chunk in the dataset.

clip([min, max, replace])

Clip values outside of a defined range.

convert(destination_units)

Convert units.

flush()

Flush the dataset data and metadata to the file.

len()

The size of the first axis.

log([base, floor])

Take the log of the entire dataset.

log10([floor])

Take the log base 10 of the entire dataset.

log2([floor])

Take the log base 2 of the entire dataset.

make_scale([name])

Make this dataset an HDF5 dimension scale.

max()

Maximum, ignorning nans.

min()

Minimum, ignoring nans.

read_direct(dest[, source_sel, dest_sel])

Read data directly from HDF5 into an existing NumPy array.

refresh()

Refresh the dataset metadata by reloading from the file.

resize(size[, axis])

Resize the dataset, or the specified axis.

slices()

Returns a generator yielding tuple of slice objects.

symmetric_root([root])

virtual_sources()

write_direct(source[, source_sel, dest_sel])
