Am getting the following error when trying to run a GRC flowgraph that

loads FFT filter taps from an external file. The type filter parameter

is

set to complex->complex (complex taps).

The flow graph has imported numpy. The taps are loaded using:

numpy.fromfile(’/home/tom/Desktop/EchoScreencaps/chirp-down-20-20-131072’,

numpy.complex64)

as the taps parameter. What does the error below mean?

GRC: v3.7.4git-101-g76970d54

Ubuntu 13.10

top_block.py is attached.

Tom,

This is a conflict between the numpy array data type and swig. Call the

.tolist() function on the array passed back from numpy and it should

work.

Tom

Thanks, Tom that solved the problem.

numpy.fromfile(‘filename’, numpy.complex64).tolist()

Should the gnuradio wiki (GRC) text be updated?

Apologies for the triple posting, first two attempts were using

yahoo.commail account, got

bit by the yahoo DMARC problem and dumped from the list. Changed to

gmail

to avoid the problem.

Strange: For me, the problem persists (at least with random dummy data

from a random file in /tmp):

taps = numpy.fromfile("/tmp/tblatex-4.png",

dtype=numpy.complex64).tolist()

fffilter = filter.fft_filter_ccc(1, taps ,1)

Absolutely update the wiki page with helpful tips like this. Which page

in

particular are you referring to?
