disipyl - a 2D and 3D Python plotting library
Sat, 09 Mar 2002 22:05:42 GMT
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
been tested on Win32, Linux, and FreeBSD, but I anticipate that it should
on any platform which can make use of Python, NumPy, and the DISLIN

This is release 0.5 of disipyl.
disipyl is a complete re-write of an earlier plotting library called
pxDislin. While similar in spirit, disipyl is much more flexible and much
more easier to use than pxDislin.
