# Determine whether the given object represents a scalar data-type in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To determine whether the given object represents a scalar data-type, use the numpy.issctype() method. The method returns Boolean result of check whether rep is a scalar dtype. The first parameter is the rep. If rep is an instance of a scalar dtype, True is returned.If not, False is returned.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np

Using the issctype() method in Numpy −

print("Result...",np.issctype(np.int32))
print("Result...",np.issctype(np.int64))
print("Result...",np.issctype(np.dtype('str')))
print("Result...",np.issctype(100))
print("Result...",np.issctype(25.9))
print("Result...",np.issctype(np.float32(22.3)))

## Example

import numpy as np

# To determine whether the given object represents a scalar datatype, use the numpy.issctype() method
# The method returns Boolean result of check whether rep is a scalar dtype.
# The first parameter is the rep. If rep is an instance of a scalar dtype, True is returned.If not, False is returned.
print("Using the issctype() method in Numpy\n")

print("Result...",np.issctype(np.int32))
print("Result...",np.issctype(np.int64))
print("Result...",np.issctype(np.dtype('str')))
print("Result...",np.issctype(100))
print("Result...",np.issctype(25.9))
print("Result...",np.issctype(np.float32(22.3)))

## Output

Using the issctype() method in Numpy

Result... True
Result... True
Result... True
Result... False
Result... False
Result... False
