Has any work been done to port PLplot's python bindings
to numarray?

    I downloaded plplot 5.5.1, changed all Numeric to numarray
    in plplot.py, and (with numarray installed) make.

    It works (I'm on Fedora 3 i686).

    I think numarray should be made the default...

    Apparently from a previous anonymous comment here
    somebody has been able to modify plplot.py to make
    numarray work, but that would immediately make our
    large set of python/numeric examples not work. From
    the numerical python home page, it appears that
    development is continuing on both numeric and
    numarray, and there are concrete plans to join the two
    projects as scipy.base. Probably the best thing to do is
    to wait until that planned transition occurs and then
    modify our python/numeric interface and our examples
    to use scipy.base.

    PLplot's Python bindings have been ported to numpy.
