[Numpy-discussion] "Using Python for Interactive Data Analysis" tutorial available

A tutorial that illustrates how Python can be used to analyze and 
visualize astronomical data (much like one can do in IDL) has been 
written and now is available at:

http://www.scipy.org/wikis/topical_software/Tutorial

While much of the focus is on astronomical data, most of it probably 
could serve as a general tutorial as well if sections on more advanced 
pyfits usage are skipped (only a few pages). There are  appendices that 
contrast Python/numarray with IDL, I'd be happy to include the 
equivalent for Matlab if anyone who is familiar with both would like to 
write such appendices.

Suggestions for improvements are welcome.
