DESCRIPTION: ----------- disipyl is an object-oriented wrapper around the DISLIN plotting library. DISLIN is a powerful and flexible multiplatform (Win32, Unix, Linux, etc.) library designed for displaying scientific data. DISLIN's author, Helmut Michels, has made available a DISLIN plotting extension for the Python programming language (see http://www.linmpi.mpg.de/dislin/ for more details).
disipyl provides a set of classes which represent various aspects of DISLIN plots, as well as providing some easy to use classes for creating commonly used plot formats (e.g. scatter plots, histograms, 3-D surface plots). A major goal in designing the library was to facilitate interactive data exploration and plot creation.
Documentation, a tutorial, and a demo program are included. The library has been tested on Win32, Linux, and FreeBSD, but I anticipate that it should work on any platform which can make use of Python, NumPy, and the DISLIN python extensions.
Feedback, comments, and critique are gladly accepted (email: email@example.com).
