[Tutor] Graphs

Try the Gnuplot module (http://gnuplot-py.sourceforge.net/). Works on
(at least) windows and linux. Here's how easy it is to graph y = x*2:

In [1]: import Gnuplot

In [2]: g = Gnuplot.Gnuplot()

In [3]: g.plot('x**2')

You can get from there to some really complicated graphics quickly and
easily. I've used it extensively, and it's a joy to work with; the
python module is easier than working with the native Gnuplot.

Also, I think if you download IPython (http://ipython.scipy.org/),
which you should, then Gnuplot comes with it. But I could be wrong. As
always, RTFM when downloading stuff.
