Interactive pylab commands in win32

Hello, I'm new to matplotlib (and fairly new to Python in general, for
that matter) with a fair amount of MATLAB experience. I've got
matplotlib running fine (I'm using the activestate ActivePython 2.4 on
win32), but when I call commands like plot and the like in the
interactive, all I get is a python object, with no GUI or anything.
All the backends I've seen seem geared towards scripts, unix-type
windowing, or both, so I'm not entirely sure what to do to emulate the
convinience of the MATLAB interactive plotting interface. How can I
do this? (Note that I'm not particularly attached to ActivePython, but
win32 is a must...)

Sounds like you need a
show()
command.

Erik,

Try ipython: http://ipython.scipy.org/, called as "ipython -pylab".
