I think I know the answer here as “no” or something, but say I have a curve I want to plot and I want the color to change along the curve to denote the 3rd variable is there anyway to do this is matplotlib?
What I mean is take the simple plot
from pylab import *
plot(range(30), range(30, 60), lw=10)
and say that the 3rd variable is
inten = [val ** 2 for val in range(30)]
then can the line change color along its length according to a specified color table?
In IDL this is done by just giving a color array with the same length as the data then the line changes with the current colortable.
