Hi
I'm new to python. I'm trying to plot a data set in matplotlib.
The data is a mixture of strings and floats, has four columns
(col[0],col[1],col[2],col[3]) and it looks like:
R -2.29350 0.50340 0.480E-01
R -2.25903 0.50740 0.480E-01
SU -2.19457 0.16200 0.800E-01
SU -2.13237 0.14600 0.800E-01
What I want to do is to plot the SU filtered entries alone as col[1]:col[2]
I wrote a script to read the data, how can I make x1 and SUx2 as
arrays? Right now matplotlib only plots the last value obviously. Or
is there a different/better way to slice just the SU entries and make
them as a separate array? My actual data file has many more entries
with more filters and I want to make a plot for each of the filters
with col[1]:col[2]
import pylab
import numpy
#Loading and reading data
data=numpy.loadtxt('file.dat',dtype=[('filt','S4'),('x1','f8'),('x2','f8'),('x3','f8')])
filt=data['filt']
for i in range(0,len(filt),1):
if filt[i] == 'SU':
x1=data['x1'][i]
SUx2=data['x2'][i]
#print x1,SUx2
pylab.plot(x1,SUx2,'bs')
pylab.show()
