numpy.asarray_chkfinite() in Python

numpy.asarray_chkfinite() function is used when we want to convert the input to an array, checking for NaNs (Not A Number) or Infs(Infinities). Input includes scalar, lists, lists of tuples, tuples, tuples of tuples, tuples of lists and ndarrays.

Syntax : numpy.asarray_chkfinite(arr, dtype=None, order=None)

Parameters :
arr : [array_like] Input data, in any form that can be converted to an float type array. This includes scalar, lists, lists of tuples, tuples, tuples of tuples, tuples of lists and ndarrays.
dtype : By default, the data-type is inferred from the input data.
order : Whether to use row-major (C-style) or column-major (Fortran-style) memory representation. Defaults to ‘C’.

Return : [ndarray] Array interpretation of arr. No copy is performed if the input is already ndarray. If arr is a subclass of ndarray, a base class ndarray is returned.

Output :

Input  list :  [1, 3, 5, 7, 9]
output array from input list :  [ 1.  3.  5.  7.  9.]

print ("Input  tuple : ", my_tuple)
    
out_arr = geek.asarray_chkfinite(my_tuple, dtype ='int8'
print ("output array from input tuple : ", out_arr)

Output :

Input  tuple :  ([1, 3, 9], [8, 2, 6])
output array from input tuple :  [[1 3 9]
 [8 2 6]]

 
Note : numpy.asarray_chkfinite() function raises ValueError if arr contains NaN (Not a Number) or Inf (Infinity).

Output :

ValueError: array must not contain infs or NaNs
