I have an interactive python application that I am using pylab with. I am having a problem where I can only create a graph ONE time. all other calls to plot() and show() cause nothing to happen.
I have used ipython -pylab as well, but the problem I am having with ipython is that all the graphs will show up AFTER i close my interactive shell. Of course, ipython works interatively every time I ‘plot’ or ‘show’ at the ipython command line.
Is this a backend issue? Does anyone else have this problem?
issue can be summarized as such:
from pylab import *
p() // works fine. graph pops up.
p() //returns nothing, no graph shows up
p() //same as above
I am on Debian Lenny, pylab .98.3-5
