[SciPy-user] Clarification

apologies - I didn't mean to sound short. For me, I find matplotlib great for 2D, and gplt works pretty well for  simple 3D stuff. What are you trying to plot in 3D, if you don't mind me asking?

I did try gplt.
Once past the fine basics, I found it unacceptable.
Certain gnuplot functionality was apparently intentionally crippled.
Additionally, when I raised questions about this, nobody 
seemed particularly interested.  Indeed, the best advice 
I got was that if I want to use gnuplot from Python, 
I should try Gnuplot.py instead.

I am uncertain why you mention Matplotlib, which I have 
consistently praised for 2-D plotting (including contour 
plots).  It is an amazing package.
