I've never used Python, and Matlab only once or twice, but what's with the Python syntax?
Seems a tad wordy. Looks like Nick Bower's IDL-like package in Python
(http://nickbower.com/computer/pydl) is worth another look though......
P.S. BTW, in Matlab, how do you simply multiply the corresponding matrix elements? (i.e.
not a matrix multiply).

Ph: (301) 763-8000 x7274 There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
Fax: (301) 763-8545 And drinking largely sobers us again.
