I want to sample *without* replacement from a vector (as with Python's random.sample). I don't see a direct replacement for this, and I don't want to carry two PRNG's around. Is the best way something like this?

permutation(myvector)[:samplesize] Thanks, Alan Isaac _______________________________________________ NumPy-Discussion mailing list NumPy-Discussion@scipy.org http://mail.scipy.org/mailman/listinfo/numpy-discussion
