wrf.decorators.cast_type

wrf.decorators.cast_type(ref_idx=0, arg_idxs=None, karg_names=None, alg_dtype=<MagicMock id='139965807017264'>, outviews='outview')

A decorator to handle type casting.

This decorator is used to cast variables to and from the required numpy.dtype used in the wrapped function.

Parameters:
  • ref_idx (int, optional) – The index in the wrapped function’s positional arguments to be used as the reference variable for determining the numpy.dtype to return. Default is 0.
  • arg_idxs (sequence of int, optional) – A sequence of indexes in the wrapped function’s positional arguments that indicate which arguments to cast. Must be specified if karg_names is None. Default is None.
  • karg_names (sequence of str) – A sequence of keyword arguments in the wrapped function’s keyword arguments that indicate the arguments to cast. Must be specified if arg_idxs is None. Default is None.
  • alg_dtype (numpy.dtype or str) – The numpy data type used in the wrapped function.
  • outviews (str or a sequence) – A single key or sequence of keys that indicate the wrapped function’s keyword argument to use as the output variable(s) in the wrapped function.
Returns:

The wrapped function’s output cast to the same numpy.dtype as the reference variable.

Return type:

numpy.ndarray
