packbits(a, axis=None, bitorder='big')¶
Packs the elements of a binary-valued array into bits in a uint8 array.
LAX-backend implementation of
packbits(). Original docstring below.
packbits(a, axis=None, bitorder=’big’)
The result is padded to full bytes by inserting zero bits at the end.
Array of type uint8 whose elements represent bits corresponding to the logical (0 or nonzero) value of the input elements. The shape of packed has the same number of dimensions as the input (unless axis is None, in which case the output is 1-D).

>>> a = np.array([[[1,0,1], ... [0,1,0]], ... [[1,1,0], ... [0,0,1]]]) >>> b = np.packbits(a, axis=-1) >>> b array([[, [ 64]], [, [ 32]]], dtype=uint8)
Note that in binary 160 = 1010 0000, 64 = 0100 0000, 192 = 1100 0000, and 32 = 0010 0000.
