Python Question

Can the numpy.where function be used for more than one specific value?

I can specify a specific value:

`>>> x = numpy.arange(5)`

>>> numpy.where(x == 2)[0][0]

2

But I would like to do something like the following. It gives an error of course.

`>>> numpy.where(x in [3,4])[0][0]`

[3,4]

Is there a way to do this without iterating through the list and combining the resulting arrays?

You can use the `numpy.in1d`

function with `numpy.where`

:

```
import numpy
numpy.where(numpy.in1d(x, [2,3]))
# (array([2, 3]),)
```
