Numpy recarray.nonzero() function | Python

In numpy, arrays may have a data-types containing fields, analogous to columns in a spreadsheet. An example is [(a, int), (b, float)], where each entry in the array is a pair of (int, float). Normally, these attributes are accessed using dictionary lookups such as arr['a'] and arr['b']. Record arrays allow the fields to be accessed as members of the array, using arr.a and arr.b.

numpy.recarray.nonzero() function is used to get the indices of the elements that are non-zero in the record array. It returns a tuple of arrays, one for each dimension of arr, containing the indices of the non-zero elements in that dimension.

Syntax : numpy.recarray.nonzero()



Parameters: None

Return : [tuple_of_arrays] Indices of elements that are non-zero.

Output:

Input array : [[( 0., 2) ( 3., -4) ( 0., 9)]
[( 9., 1) ( 5., 0) (-12., -7)]]
Record array of float: [[ 0. 3. 0.]
[ 9. 5. -12.]]
Record array of int: [[ 2 -4 9]
[ 1 0 -7]]
Indices of non zero elements : (array([0, 1, 1, 1], dtype=int64), array([1, 0, 1, 2], dtype=int64))
Indices of non zero elements : (array([0, 0, 0, 1, 1], dtype=int64), array([0, 1, 2, 0, 2], dtype=int64))
