Python Modules to Learn: SciPy



I ran across scipy today.

I remember hearing about it back when I started programming python. I think initially I ran across it because it had some graphing abilities.

Looking at it again recently I realized this is something I really need to learn.

Specifically, it's got very strong looking distribution related functions and stats functions.

Distributions Module:
http://www.scipy.org/doc/api_docs/SciPy.stats.distributions.html

Stats Module:
http://www.scipy.org/doc/api_docs/SciPy.stats.stats.html

Previously, I had considered writting my own functions to do some of the same things that these moduels provide, but they provide so much more.

On to learning.
