[SciPy-user] pycrust

As long as you use the TkAgg backend, I was able to use matplotlib and 
scipy with pycrust:
import pylab
from scipy import *
x=arange(0,1,0.1)
y=sin(2*pi*x)
pylab.plot(x,y)
pylab.show()

The only catch is that once you show() your plots, you have to close 
them all before you can do anything else in the command window (because 
gui_thread doesn't work).

While pycrust and its variants form a nice environment, the editor 
associated with them is pretty plain and the history mechanism isn't 
persistant (i.e. it doesn't remember commands after you close it and 
restart it).
