Hi Chris,

Just as a point of clarification,

An "ndarray" is the name of the numpy ndimensional array object type.
Matt was trying to clarify that it is a numpy array rather than a
native python list, not specifying that it is N-dimensional in the
sense of greater than one. An ndarray could be one-dimensional, for

$ python -c "import numpy as na; a = na.zeros(10); print a.__class__"
<type 'numpy.ndarray'>
