Python | Numpy ndarray.__array__()

With the help of ndarray.__array__() method, we can create a new array as we want by giving a parameter as dtype and we can get a copy of an array that doesn’t change the data element of original array if we change any element in the new one.

Syntax : ndarray.__array__()

Return :

  • Returns either a new reference to self if dtype is not given
  • New array of provided data type if dtype is different from the current dtype of the array.

Example #1 :

In this example we can see that we change the dtype of a new array by just using ndarray.__array__() method.

geeks = gfg.__array__(float)
