    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
the Python programming language (see
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.
