Tks vm for your reply. I was able to get the script to run with your
"examples" directory. Much appreciated.
However, when I unzipped the py.60a.zip files over my site-packages
directory and re-ran the script, I got the following error:
C:\Matplotlib\matplotlib src\examples>python stock_demo.py
Traceback (most recent call last):

Is version 0.54.2 not the correct starting point for doing this unzip? If
solving this is a hassle, I don't mind going back to the old 0.54.2 and
waiting for the bug fixes that come with the next proper release.

Where are you getting the examples dir from? I notice that I failed to
upload a zip file that includes the examples directory with the
0.54.2 release. Are you using one from a previous release?
It looks like you make have a corrupt stock data file. I was able to load
the stock_demo example using both the numeric and numarray win32 builds,
with either numerix setting in my rc file.
I did, however, discover a bug in the navigation code in that example
related to data clipping.
The zip file below fixes the latter problem. Unzip it in your site-packages
dir (do not remove the old matplotlib code, just unzip this over it)
And get a fresh examples dir from
Hope this helps,
