modifying a plot from an imported module

Hello,

I am plotting something in a file A.py

In another file (B.py), I wish to do
  import A
and then add a curve to that same plot (and replot it).

Is that possible?

Thanks!

Hi.

The short answer is yes.

orion:~ % cat A.py

from matplotlib.pyplot import *

print "A"
plot([0,1],[0,1])
draw()
orion:~ % cat B.py

from matplotlib.pyplot import *

import A

print "B"
plot([0.5,0.75],[0,1])
draw()
show()

Using ipython:

In [2]: run -i B.py
A
B

and the figure shows both plots.

Perfect, many thanks!

So the trick was _not_ to do "show()" in A.py

(Moreover, doing "draw()" in A.py also seems necessary... even though I
don't really get why -- actually in my own more complicated program, it
works also without this draw...)
