Checkout matplotlib: http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/

Powerful (esp. with IPython), clean implementation, very nice output,
IMHO.  It does depend on some other things; primarily numpy and some
sort of backend for displaying figures (usually can use a default
backend -- e.g. Tkinter).  Otherwise you can plot directly to file.
May not be what you're looking for if you want something quick.

HTH,

Kurt
