Code:
def plothist(n, bins=10, mlabel='myplot', normed=False, mdir=None):
"""
This is a wrapper for the pylab.hist() function in which we do some
customization of the plot.
n = the data to be binned.
bins= integer indicating the number of equal spaced bins.
mlable = a label to put on the plot
showit=True if a plot is to be displayed
mdir= directory for saving the plot. if it is None, no plot will be
saved
"""
itype=type(10)
if type(bins)!=itype:
raise ValueError('bins must be an integer indicating the number of
bins')
bins=_gethistbins(n,bins) #convert bins to an array
#make label is a string
mlabel=str(mlabel)
#create a figure
f1=pylab.figure(num=1,figsize=(12,6), dpi=80, facecolor='white',
edgecolor='black',frameon=True)
#create the axes in the figure matplotlib.axes
ax=f1.add_subplot(111) #there is only one subplot
#Turn grid on
ax.grid(b=True)
#Set the title
ax.set_title(mlabel)
#plot the histogram
ax.hist(n, bins=bins, normed=normed)
show()
if mdir != None:
pylab.savefig(mdir+'\\'+ mlabel+'.png')
return #plot object
-----
mlabel = 'PS IRAT HO Success Rate (UMTS -> GSM)'
Causes IPython to Exit and Idle to Reset. If I remove the '>' character,
all is well again.
I attached a file of data that I am histogramming associated with this
title.
