Hi everybody,

I'm starting to write a program with PyQt to visualize some traces from 
a system of ODEs. I would like to plot one graphic for each variable 
inside this PyQt application...and I'm wondering which one is the best 
for it: matplotlib or pyqwt? I will read some files using PyTables and 
then I'll plot everything and some of these files are very big, so I 
need something fast and good.

I've been using matplotlib for some small programs and it's very nice, 
powerful and beautiful. I've already embedded some matplotlib plots 
inside a PyQt application. But I have the impression that pyqwt is 
faster than matplotlib. Is it true? Is there another library for 
plotting that would do the job?
