Either I updated something that changed Matplotlib's behavior or I am
missing something, but when I make a plot in ipython, control is not
returning to the prompt - I can't do anything until I close the plot.
Here is exactly what I am doing:
Also, I am not sure if that is right. In the past I remember just being
able to type plot() and the figure came up and control went back to
ipython to continue. But I could be wrong.
Then, if I want to do anything else, I have to close the window. The
backend I am using is WXAgg. I also noticed that if I use the GTKAgg
backend, control does not return to the prompt even after closing the
plot. I have to hit ctl-c to get the prompt back. I have tried this
both with ion() and ioff().
I don't ever remember having to close the plot or hit control-c to keep
working. I googled and did not really see anything relevant. Could
anyone tell me what I am missing or what I need to do so that I can
plot in ipython, leave the plot up, and then continue working?
I have matplotlib 1.0.0 and ipython 0.10.1
Thanks for any help!
