1. Code snippets
To gplt/pyPlot.py please add:
To gplt/interface.py please add:
This will give general access to the gnuplot command line.
(I would gladly make these changes myself, if I am given
If SciPy has a commitment to maintaining gplt's pyPlot module,
and *if* there is at least one good reason not to promote
Gnuplot.py instead, I can spend a little time on pyPlot.
It sounds to me, however, that SciPy is currently promoting
a shift to matplotlib and that interest in gplt has died,
so that users interested in gnuplot should shift to Gnuplot.py.
Please let me know.
If SciPy is no longer interested in pyPlot, perhaps
it should nevertheless retain its interest in gnuplot.
(I am personally a strong gnuplot admirer.)
In which case, perhaps the gplt interface should be
to Gnuplot.py instead of pyPlot.py. If so, I would consider
working on this. (However, I haven't tried out Gnuplot.py
