Newbie help!

This looks like a version conflict in matplotlib. The dispatcher
thing is from an older version and is no longer used, and the
_simple_demo.py code has been removed as well. I suggest you remove
the C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\matplotlib dir entirely and
reinstall version 0.29 from the matplotlib sourceforge site.

Then you should be able to run the examples in the examples dir of the
src distribution without problems.

Let me know how it goes,

I am using the 0.29 version of matplotlib. I switched
to running the examples from the tutorial and things
are working great.

You verified what I thought, that _simple_demo.py was
from an earlier version.

I haven't been able to use the package interactively
yet. At a command prompt, I was able to run the
thread test from the website though. I'll mainly be
using matplotlib statically anyway.

As a long time Matlab user, I was very happy to find
this package!

Thanks for your quick response.

Update on the interactive mode:

I found the interactive2.py on the website and tried
that rather than the interactive.py that was included
with the .29 dist. That worked. However,

1. it can't find ShowOn (NameError) so I just typed
show() at the command prompt

2. and it doesn't exit using ctrl-z <enter> ; I used
the close box.
