I am using matplotlib to create a static graph from a few fairly large
data sets. (Over 500,000 samples)
I know you can pull out datasets of an axes by using the functions
get_xdata() and get_ydata(),
which leads me to wonder how matplotlib handles large data sets? Does
it keep the entire data sets stored in memory?
The application I am trying develop I hope to be able to run on low
end PC's with little RAM.
If data sets are indeed stored in RAM, is there a way to discard the
plot data after a plot had been created to leave just a static image?
Or, read and store data points directly from a file?
Thanks for your help.
