[Numpy-discussion] a simple examplr showing numpy and matplotlib failing

I found  a workaround. If I replace
> plot_data=data[0,0:,0]
With
> plot_data=numpy.copy(data[0,0:,0])

Everything is okay.

I am on Windows XP 64 with 4 Gigs ram. (Note: the data array is greater than 4 Gigs since my datatype is float64. If I decrease the size so that the array is around 3 Gigs, all is good)

Hi Mathew,
    I saw your email and I was curious about it. I tried your code and it does work for me without any problem.

Hmm... works for me. What platform, with how much physical and virtual RAM?

One thing you may want to try is to completely destroy the figure each time:

if fig:
fig.clf()
fig=None
