Hello all,

I am new to using Matplotlib and have run into the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in -toplevel-
    plotfile = load('F:/water_budget_analysis/pilotwi_out.txt', delimiter=',')
  File "F:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\matplotlib\pylab.py", line 999, in load
    row = [float(val) for val in line.split(delimiter)]
MemoryError


Let me explain what I have been attempting to do.  I am trying to generate a histogram of a large amount of data that has been mined from ArcMap.  Here's the scary part.  The size of the data file is approximately 190 MB with about 24 million data values.  Have I reached a limit here?  Any suggestions?

thanks
Kenneth
