I produced a line plot as:

ax.plot (x, y, ‘.’)

and saved as pdf.

Both x and y were large vectors, resulting in a large pdf, and when incorporated into a LaTeX document, the resulting pdf takes a long time to open.

Other than my manually decimating the vectors:

ax.plot (x[::100], y[::100], ‘.’)

Is there some way within mpl to simplify plots? Or perhaps post-processing the pdf?

Thanks,

Neal
