I am writing a python script from which I hope to call the Matlab anovan function. I have attempted a basic test of this feature on file
This file is imported as array
data. In matlab, the anovan function would be called as follows:
In python, I have attempted to call the function like this:
import matlab.engine eng = matlab.engine.start_matlab() data = np.genfromtxt('test.txt') eng.anovan(matlab.double(data[:,0]),matlab.int8(data[:,1:2]))
Unfortunately, this gives the following error:
ValueError: initializer must be a rectangular nested sequence
I can see that there is some issue in passing the last two array columns to the function, but am unsure of the solution. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have now worked this out. The issue was in the format of the data passed to the function.
#convert grouping columns to integer lists list1 = data[:,1].tolist() for i in range(0,len(list1)): list1[i] = int(list1[i]) list2 = data[:,2].tolist() for i in range(0,len(list2)): list2[i] = int(list2[i]) #The following command now works eng.anovan(matlab.double(data[:,0].tolist()),[matlab.int8(list1),matlab.int8(list2)])
