sklearn.utils.gen_even_slices

sklearn.utils.gen_even_slices(n, n_packs, n_samples=None)[source]

Generator to create n_packs slices going up to n.

Pass n_samples when the slices are to be used for sparse matrix indexing; slicing off-the-end raises an exception, while it works for NumPy arrays.

Examples

>>> from sklearn.utils import gen_even_slices
>>> list(gen_even_slices(10, 1))
[slice(0, 10, None)]
>>> list(gen_even_slices(10, 10))                     
[slice(0, 1, None), slice(1, 2, None), ..., slice(9, 10, None)]
>>> list(gen_even_slices(10, 5))                      
[slice(0, 2, None), slice(2, 4, None), ..., slice(8, 10, None)]
>>> list(gen_even_slices(10, 3))
[slice(0, 4, None), slice(4, 7, None), slice(7, 10, None)]
