My earlier post was just supposed to go to Jens, but I forgot to
delete the "CC:" line.  I didn't want to fill everyone's mbox.

I've put my wrapper for the pgplot library into


if anyone would like to look at it.  I have no great pretensions to
professional programming skills, and make no promises about the code.
Most of it has been cut and pasted from elsewhere. But it worked for me.

Earlier this year someone else mentioned that they had wrapped pgplot
into Python with SWIG, but I don't have the details.  They may have
done a far more complete and correct job than me.
