Help!. I'd like to show traditional "lesser-than-or-equal" and

"greater-than-or-equal" symbols in a title or label fields but can't

find anything in the documentation and I've tried a number of guesses

but to no avail. Given the range of mathematical expressions that

matplot can support I'm sure there is something better than "<=". Thanks

in advance.

# Greater (or less) than or equal symbol

You can use the \leq latex symbol when using either the mathtext module.

See the screenshots page for a demo of it.

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/screenshots/mathtext_demo.py

Also, this page contains a list of latex math symbols.

Frank:

Try this:

>>> from pylab import *

>>> plot([1,2,3])

>>> title(u'\N{GREATER-THAN OR EQUAL TO}')

>>> show()
