matplotlib/__init__.py : gs version parsing problem

Hi,

Quoting matplotlib/__init__.py :

def checkdep_ghostscript():
    try:
        if sys.platform == 'win32':
            command = 'gswin32c -v'
        else:
            command = 'gs -v'
        stdin, stdout = os.popen4(command)
        line = stdout.readlines()[0]
        v = line.split()[2]
        vtest = '.'.join(v.split('.')[:2]) # deal with version numbers like '7.07.1'
        float(vtest)
        return vtest
    except (IndexError, ValueError):
        return None

It fails on debian sid because 'gs -v' returns "GPL Ghostscript SVN PRE-RELEASE 8.61 (2007-08-02)\n"

Anyway, the parser will be ugly because it has to deal with version numbers like '7.07.1'.
Should I propose a trivial patch to get thinks working on debian sid ?

Xavier
ps :Why is there no standard way (like -v or --version) on *unix to get the version *number*?? Only the version number. Why :frowning:

This was fixed a while back in svn, but thanks for the report. It turns out
that --version does return only the version number.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to get the svn version working :
imshow always fails :
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/pyplot.py in imshow(*args, **kwargs)
   1673 hold(h)
   1674 try:
-> 1675 ret = gca().imshow(*args, **kwargs)
   1676 draw_if_interactive()
   1677 except:

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/axes.py in imshow(self, X, cmap, norm, aspect, interpolation, alpha, vmin, vmax, origin, extent, shape, filternorm, filterrad, imlim, **kwargs)
   4435 im.autoscale_None()
   4436
-> 4437 xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax = im.get_extent()
   4438
   4439 corners = (xmin, ymin), (xmax, ymax)

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/image.py in get_extent(self)
    286 sz = self.get_size()
    287 #print 'sz', sz
--> 288 numrows, numcols = sz
    289 if self.origin == 'upper':
    290 return (-0.5, numcols-0.5, numrows-0.5, -0.5)

ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack

but it is another topic.

It looks like you may be passing in a 1D array to imshow or to
im.set_array. Could you post a code sample?

Yeah , I did face the same problem . My code is following:
There seems to be something wrong in "ax.imshow(im)", I can't get the answer
, Can sb help me .
The error message"ValueError: need more than 0 values to unpack"
Thank you .

answer , Can sb help me .

The imshow documentation says "X may be a float array, a uint8 array or a PIL
image", but you are passing it an AxesImage instance, which wont work.
