No such file or directory: 'results/test_preds.dat/meta/sizes'

In the redux notebook, after saving the results, the notebook tries to re-load them, in the following line:
preds = load_array(‘results/test_preds.dat’)

my notebook fails with the following error:

IOError Traceback (most recent call last)

/home/ubuntu/as/repos/DL/nbs/utils.pyc in load_array(fname)

That means it can’t find your saved array.

You may need to prefix your load_array param with: path+

Otherwise it’s relying on your being in the same working directory as when you saved it.

I had a lot of trouble debugging the paths to the items.
you could try %pwd before you run the commands just to check where the cell thinks you are in the file structure.


That’s a good idea - although if you always prefix your paths with “path+” then you’ll have absolute paths.
