[newb] batch processing

To produce a batch of pdfs, I'm using:

close ()
figure (1, figsize=(11,8))
...
savefig (open (whatever, 'w'))

Works, but causes my display to flash, I think each time either close() or
figure() is called (not sure which). Any better way?

Your matplotlib is probably configured to use a GUI backend. Set the backend to "pdf" in either your matplotlibrc file or with

import matplotlib
matplotlib.use("pdf")

at the top of your script.

If you still see flashing windows, that's a bug, and let us know so we can fix it.

Cheers,
Mike
