I'm new to matplotlib; I was using PyX but matplotlib seems further developed for what I want to do.
One of the problems that I'm having is simply getting started. I've discovered that there are a whole bunch of dependencies that weren't obvious in the manual:
* You need PyNum (documented)
* You need wxPython (not documented that I've found)
Nevertheless, I'm still having problems. The example in the beginning of the manual doesn't work for me; array() is undefined:
Python 2.4.3 (#1, Mar 30 2006, 11:02:16)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5250)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from pylab import *
>>> dt = 0.01
>>> t = arrange(0,10,dt)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
NameError: name 'arrange' is not defined
