Oh no, that's not what I meant when I asked you if you had installed Xcode. It's just that you need Xcode for the C compiler. Stick with your IDLE shell, or whatever shell you prefer (I strongly advise you to use IPython...)
> You distinguish between system wide installation and user installation. You may have seen from my post to Eric, that I found and installed .dmg downloads for numpy and matplotlib. I have tried to figure out where these installed themselves, but I haven't found them in the user folder. I assume they have been installed system wide. Is this going to be a problem?
Nope. If you go the dmg way, then you're pretty much set.
Please note that when reporting a problem (such as your dispersion_plot issue), you should try to give us more info (matplotlib version, the script that you were using, etc.)
