I guess I am o.k. I don't know what I was doing wrong at first. I
think I was drawing the arrow off the visible part of the plot. I
seem to get pretty good results from
and I can infer some of the options from this line in arrow_demo.py (181-183):
arrow(x_pos, y_pos, x_scale*length, y_scale*length, \
fc=fc, ec=ec, alpha=alpha, width=width, head_width=head_width, \
It would be great though if the docstring was more help:
Help on function arrow in module matplotlib.pylab:
Draws arrow on specified axis from (x,y) to (x+dx,y+dy).
Addition kwargs: hold = [True|False] overrides default hold state
