numpy.atleast_2d() in Python

numpy.atleast_2d() function is used when we want to Convert inputs to arrays with at least two dimension. Scalar and 1-dimensional inputs are converted to 2-dimensional arrays, whilst higher-dimensional inputs are preserved.

Syntax : numpy.atleast_2d(*arrays)

Parameters :
arrays1, arrays2, … : [array_like] One or more array-like sequences. Non-array inputs are converted to arrays. Arrays that already have two or more dimensions are preserved.

Return : An array, or list of arrays, each with a.ndim >= 2. Copies are avoided where possible, and views with two or more dimensions are returned.
