bug importing numpy with matplotlib.numerix

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.

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.

Hi Eric,

I don't think this is a bug. Your last import doesnt do what you think it is
doing. For example:

In [1]: import matplotlib as d

In [2]: from d import rcParams

···

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
exceptions.ImportError Traceback (most recent
call last)

/home/darren/<ipython console>

ImportError: No module named d

You have imported the module to namespace d, you have not renamed the module.
If you want median and std in the main namespace, you could do

median = num.median
std = num.std

that is, you could this if median and std were provided by numerix, which they
are not. They are in matplotlib.numerix.mlab.

In order get pylab to work on my Mac I have to do the following (found by some experimenting):

import matplotlib
matplotlib.use("WXAgg")
import pylab

Does this seem right? I mean, it works, but it seems to be a little gymnastics to go through rather than just doing

import pylab

which gives

ImportError: No module named gobject

since it can't seem to find that backend in the "backend" directory when it tries to import backend_gtkagg.py. I guess that doesn't work on the Mac.

My setup: (Tiger 10.4) Al Laptop, Python 2.4, latest pylab from SciPy package.

Edit your "~/.matplotlib/matplotlibrc" file to specify the default.
On OSX WXAgg or TkAgg is the best bet.
