hi,

what is the difference among numeric, numpy and numarray?  i'm going to start 
using matplotlib soon and i'm not sure which one i should use.


this page says, "Numarray is a re-implementation of an older Python array module 
called Numeric"
http://www.stsci.edu/resources/software_hardware/numarray

this page says, "NumPy derives from the old Numeric code base and can be used as 
a replacement for Numeric."
http://numeric.scipy.org/

i looked at the matplotlib examples today and if i remember correctly, the 
examples didn't use numarray.

so i'm a bit confused.

thanks,

bryan
