reversing output of numpy argsort

Hi,

I find it amazing that I can't find an answer online, but how do I use numpy argsort to sort in reverse order?  The documentation is sparse.

I'm sorting a simple array of numbers and need the sorted index values in descending order.

ideas?

Thanks!

Thanks anyway.  I'm having to take the longer path of converting to a list and then reversing, instead of the far more efficient path of argsort actually having a reverse argument!  Oh well.

I don't know a lot about Python, but ran across this, so i thought i'd toss it at you,

L2.reverse()

I grabbed this from page 17,

Thanks, but that has nothing to do with numpy's argsort.  That's plain python but I'm using numpy's data structure.

Thanks, but I've been through all these pages already through extensive searching, and they don't address the actual issue. None of the pages I've found have answered my question.
