Dear matplotlib/numpy gurus,

This is my first attempt to use matplotlib & numpy, with the following small piece of code:

#!/usr/bin/env jython   **** jython because of the import of stilts from starjava ****

# Fabrique les figures des champs du papier Catalogue

__date__ ="$16 mai 2011 12:17:08$"

import sys
import stilts
import glob
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

I got the following trace:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/marquett/Downloads/FigCat/src/figcat.py", line 14, in <module>
    import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/__init__.py", line 135, in <module>

    from numpy.lib import add_newdoc
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/numpy/lib/__init__.py", line 4, in <module>
    from type_check import *
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/numpy/lib/type_check.py", line 8, in <module>
    import numpy.core.numeric as _nx
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/numpy/core/__init__.py", line 5, in <module>
    import multiarray
ImportError: No module named multiarray

I use the latest 1.6.0 version of numpy and 1.0.0 one of matplotlib.

My so little experience tells me that this is a deep numpy issue rather than a matplotlib one.

Any hint welcome, thanks.
