Description

Reading http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_39_0/libs/python/doc/v2/numeric.html#array-spec I run into a number of invalid / outdated URLs. Notably, the above page starts with

"Provides access to the array types of Numerical Python's Numeric and NumArray? modules", but in one of the followup URLs I find

"numarray is being phased out and replaced by numpy".

Thus my questions:

Other than a fix to the above docs, does boost.python need any adjustments to work with numpy ? In fact, what is the relationship between the above (old) modules and numpy ? Reading some follow-up docs it appears as if the numpy array types grew out of Numeric / NumArray?. Sorry for those somewhat tangential questions. I believe at least some clarification on the boost.python documentation as to what exact array types it is able to bind to would be very helpful.
