[SciPy-user] wxpython

thanks. I'll try that.
 
I'm currently coding in matlab to simulate 1D steady state fluid
dynamics problems, and considering the switch to python/scipy. Key
issues of concern:
1) can matrices/vectors be handled in the same way (this is the power of
matlab of course). eg. the matlab 'dot' notation which operates element
by element on matrices. using vectors greatly speeds up code over for
loops and makes it more compact.
2) matlab has extremely powerful plotting facilities
3) object orientation. Actually I think python might excel here. I get a
bit frustrated with matlab objects (no passing by reference, for
example).
4) creation of executables/binaries-- should be okay
 
Do you or anyone have any comments on these points?
 
Dave

Dave,

I actually get the same thing.  I know it can be frustrating to try new
software and have it not work completely out of the box.  At this point
in the installation, someone recommended to me to switch to Ipython and
matplotlib.  That is what I have done and I am quite happy with it.

	Hi,
	
	I had some trouble in the past as well using gui_thread and
someone
	recommend me to use matplotlib
(http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net).  
	Otherwise, wxpython allows you to play with gui and can be find
here:  
	(http://www.wxpython.org).
