[SciPy-user] ANN: PlottingCanvas

a while ago we addressed the question
of plotting  many thousand points quickly and
dynamically (i.e. one after another).
While scipy.xplt does a good job for this
in some cases we also wanted to have a nice
user-interface (with buttons and such)
and our choice came to wxPython.
However, none of the present plotting
packages fully fitted our specific needs and
thus we starting coding our own.
The resulting PlottingCanvas for wxPython can be found under

The PlottingCanvas might illustrate what speed
is possible with wxPython (one question is whether
this speed would also be possible in chaco).

Any suggestions for further speed improvements
and comments are welcome!
