A tutorial that illustrates how Python can be used to analyze and
visualize astronomical data (much like one can do in IDL) has been
written and now is available at:
While much of the focus is on astronomical data, most of it probably
could serve as a general tutorial as well if sections on more advanced
pyfits usage are skipped (only a few pages). There are appendices that
contrast Python/numarray with IDL, I'd be happy to include the
equivalent for Matlab if anyone who is familiar with both would like to
write such appendices.
Suggestions for improvements are welcome.
