Just downloaded ipython -- it's a nifty little environment! (tab
completion for methods, shell access, explicit display of exception
names etc.) Thanks for the recommendation.
What I want is this:
1) a means of plotting a graph from the interactive environment; and,
2) a means of doing the same from within a series of Python scripts
that I plan to distribute to others. Currently, that means using
py2exe (for Windows). I'm doing my development on Mac OS X (and
deploying on Windows), so I'm constrained to using a cross-platform
framework like wxWidgets through wxPython.
How do you do your plotting in ipython? How do I get my Python
program to plot using wxPython without using ipython?
On a completely different note, has anyone tried Aquaterm? I'm
testing Aquaterm but I haven't been able to figure out how to point
to it from SciPy.
A test on plain old GNUPlot gave me this error:
