Greetings to all from a new user of scipy!
My environment for scipy consists of a PC running Windows 2000
with Cygwin (full installation, in the last month) & its Python2.3, and
scipy and f2py2e installed from the CVS repositories. Here's my
question: I'm using the scipy.gplt routines to visualize some 3d data
sets, and getting pretty good plots on the Xwindows terminal, but I don't
appear to be able to write plots to files. For example, the fragment
... plotting commands...
gplt.output(filename, 'epslatex color')
with filename "myfile.eps" does generate a file "myfile.eps" in my working
directory, which I can open with Adobe PhotoShop, but there is no graph in
it. I get similar results with a png file. The documentation refers to
drivers needed gnuplot -- how can I tell whether I have any installed, and
how can I obtain and install them if I need to?
Thanks very much in advance for any help!
