When I do a plot with quiver, I get very fat vectors - the arrow head length is about 0.1 times the total height of the plot. If I do the following plot:
from pylab import *
- it is very difficult to see the single vectors because they are overlapping. I have tried different values of “width” in the call to quiver (e.g. width=0.1), but this has no effect.
I am using Windows XP, Python 2.4.3 - Enthought Edition 1.0.0 and matplotlib ver. 0.87.3 - but I saw the same problem in an earlier windows installation.
