No plot output when running a script from another script

I am trying to execute (with execfile) a script A.py containing matplotlib plotting commands from within a script B.py.

Within B.py, I do execfile(“A.py”)

The A.py script runs correctly, except that no plot is shown.

I have checked that the A.py script does plot (to a separate window) when run

with python A.py from the terminal.

A.py does include plt.show()

Could an expert on backends help, please!

Thanks

David.

David,

The attached scripts, which seem to be a minimal example of what you describe, work for me with matplotlib 1.2.1, MacOSX backend.

B.py (18 Bytes)
