See the guide: Graph Editor (contrib) > Module: select

Helper to select operations and tensors.


  • *args: list of 1) regular expressions (compiled or not) or 2) (array of) tf.Operation 3) (array of) tf.Tensor. Regular expressions matching tensors must start with the comment "(?.html#ts)", for instance: "(?.html#ts)^foo/.*".
  • **kwargs: 'graph': tf.Graph in which to perform the regex query.This is required when using regex. 'positive_filter': an elem if selected only if positive_filter(elem) is True. This is optional.


A tuple (ops, ts) where: ops is a list of tf.Operation, and ts is a list of tf.Tensor


  • TypeError: if the optional keyword argument graph is not a tf.Graph or if an argument in args is not an (array of) tf.Tensor or an (array of) tf.Operation or a string or a regular expression.
  • ValueError: if one of the keyword arguments is unexpected or if a regular expression is used without passing a graph as a keyword argument.
