newbie: easy question (I hope)

Hello,
I would like to plot some data while the interpreter continues calculating...
if I just write
plot(x,y)
show()

Then the code stops until I close the window... how should I do?
Thanks in advance
Chiara

Hi,

Then the code stops until I close the window... how should I do?

This is normal behavior as, I guess, your program is single-threaded.

What you want is some concurrency during the execution (computing and plotting).

You should look at multi-threading programming in Python. You could have a look here: http://www.devshed.com/c/a/Python/Basic-Threading-in-Python/ for further details on thread in Python.

Hi Chiara,

Try setting
interactive : True

in your matplotlibrc file

See:
