ak.to_layout

Defined in awkward.operations.convert on line 1877.

ak.to_layout(array, allow_record=True, allow_other=False, numpytype=(np.number, np.bool_, np.str_, np.bytes_, np.datetime64, np.timedelta64))
Parameters
  • array – Data to convert into an ak.layout.Content and maybe ak.layout.Record and other types.

  • allow_record (bool) – If True, allow ak.layout.Record as an output; otherwise, if the output would be a scalar record, raise an error.

  • allow_other (bool) – If True, allow non-Awkward outputs; otherwise, if the output would be another type, raise an error.

  • numpytype (tuple of NumPy types) – Allowed NumPy types in ak.layout.NumpyArray outputs.

Converts array (many types supported, including all Awkward Arrays and Records) into a ak.layout.Content and maybe ak.layout.Record and other types.

This function is usually used to sanitize inputs for other functions; it would rarely be used in a data analysis.
