[SciPy-User] getting started with arrays and matplotlib

Thanks, that was a good start.

One question: How can I automatically get a list of colours for each bar? I don't know how many bars I'm going to have so I can't manually pick them...

This feels like a common enough problem that I'm guessing there's a solution somewhere in matplotlib?

Secondly, once I've populated this, any good examples of how to turn it
into a bar chart? (the simple bar chart would be number of sales on the
y-axis, weeks before the event on the x-axis, however, what I'd then
like to do is split each bar into chunks for each venue's sales, if that
makes sense?)

This might give you an example of what you need:


but you'd be better off asking on matplotlib-users.
