[GRASS-dev] Parsing output of r.category which includes labels

Dear Nikos,

Can you give us a bit more context?
What is it you want to achieve? How are you using r.stats and what is it you want to do with the output?

Personally, I am not too familiar with performance implications of NumPy vs. plain Python, but rather use NumPy for convenience in matrix/table operations (avoiding pandas)...

a somewhat irrelevant question to the original subject:

do you think the NumPy way is worth to collage a series of `r.stats` outputs?

Imagine administrative boundaries and one `r.stats` call for each. They may be tenths, or hundreds, or thousands as the script is meant to cover European wide extents.

Or should I just work this out using native Python?

Thank you for any thoughts,
