    pxDislin 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).

    pxDislin 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 and a demo program are included.  The library has
been tested on WinNT 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:

    This is release 0.3 of pxDislin.

-- Almost complete coverage of useful plot functions in the DISLIN
-- Support for legends.
-- New attribute setting mechanisms to improve functionality in
interactive seesions.
