ANN matplotlib-0.30 - matlab style python plotting

matplotlib is a 2D plotting package for python with a matlab
compatible syntax and output tested under linux and windows platforms.

matplotlib-0.30 is available for download at
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net, and has many new features since the
last major release.

Multiple outputs

matplotlib now supports postscript and GD output, as well as the
traditional GTK backend. The postscript backend goes a long way
towards the goal of acheiving publication quality output. The GD
backend allows you to use matplotlib even in environments with no X
server, such as for a web application server serving dynamic charts.

Log scaling

With the help of Andrew Straw, matplotlib now has log axis
capabilities, with new commands semilogx, semilogy and loglog
See http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/sc....html#log_shot


With the help of Charles R. Twardy, matplotlib now has a matlab
compatible legend command. See

Numerous bug fixes and minor additions

DPI parameter allows multiple output resolutions with correct

Several bug fixes in GTK interactive mode using

Multiple ways to specify colors, including matlab compatible format
strings, RGB tuples, and html-style hex color strings

Rewrite of line class for much greater compatibility with matlab
handle graphics commands and flexibility in choosing line styles and

See http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html for screenshots
and http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/whats_new.html for more detailed
information on what's new.

Hi! I am making a small program using boa constructor. This program converts fine into an exe file using py2exe. Then, I embedded a figure canvas from matplotlib in a wxpython panel. I followed the instructions given by py2exe wiki about matplotlib and tried to convert to an exe file. It first said several modules were missing. I realized that those were modules that matplotlib or Numeric will try to import and then provide the codes on...

Can anyone give any suggestions on how to make a logarithmic (base 10) x and y axis (loglog) plot in matplotlib? The scatter function doesn't seem to have any log functionality built into it. Thanks, Derek Basch P.S. I suck at math so feel free to make me feel stupid if it is really easy to do :).

I'm playing around with matplotlib for the first time. I'm trying to make a very simple histogram of values 1-6 and how many times they occur in a sequence. However, after about an hour of searching I cannot make the histogram stay within the bounds of the grid lines. Here is my example: pylab.grid() x_values= pylab.hist(x_values,6)
