Indeed, I don't think the `array` module is much used anymore.

If you're looking to serialize or deserialize fixed-size formats, you'll probably want the `struct` module.  It has both native and fixed-size modes.

For anything else involving arrays (mostly, but not exclusively, of numbers), just use numpy.  It has a much more developed system of data types for its arrays, and supports views.
