Hi,

I have a problem when importing numpy from matplotlib.numerix:

When I do:

import matplotlib

import matplotlib.numerix as num # numpy

from num import median, std

I get:

exceptions.ImportError Traceback (most

recent call last)

ImportError: No module named num

It seems that it does not import numpy but something else. (for example

num.std does not exist).

How do I solve that? (I saw a thread which seems to indicate that it was

solved recently, but I have recent versions of everything :

matplotlib version 0.87.5

platform is linux2

numerix numpy 1.0rc1.dev3157

backend GTKAgg version 2.8.2

Python 2.4.2 (#1, May 2 2006, 08:13:46)

IPython 0.7.3.svn -- An enhanced Interactive Python.

What could I do there?

Note that in the help of matplotlib.numerix, numpy is only indicated in

Option 0. (see below)

thanks for any help there.

Eric

Help on package matplotlib.numerix in matplotlib:

NAME

matplotlib.numerix - numerix imports either Numeric or numarray

based on various selectors.

FILE

/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site/packages/matplotlib/numerix/__init__.py

DESCRIPTION

0. If the value "--numpy","--numarray" or "--Numeric" is specified

on the

command line, then numerix imports the specified

array package.

1. The value of numerix in matplotlibrc: either Numeric or numarray

2. If none of the above is done, the default array package is Numeric.

Because the matplotlibrc always provides *some* value for numerix

(it has it's own system of default values), this default is most

likely never used.

To summarize: the commandline is examined first, the rc file second,

and the default array package is Numeric.
