Using Fil for the first time

First, install Fil.

Then, create a Python file called with the following code:

import numpy as np

def make_big_array():
    return np.zeros((1024, 1024, 50))

def make_two_arrays():
    arr1 = np.zeros((1024, 1024, 10))
    arr2 = np.ones((1024, 1024, 10))
    return arr1, arr2

def main():
    arr1, arr2 = make_two_arrays()
    another_arr = make_big_array()


Now, you can run it with Fil:

$ fil-profile run

This will run the program under Fil, and pop up the results.

In the next section, we’ll look at the results and see what they tell us.
