PyX offers you +a flexible system which, while providing sensible defaults, allows you to +customize almost every aspect of the graph output. Such a flexibility comes at +a price, though: you need to learn at least a little bit about the different +components playing together in order to produce a graph. In this section, we +try to give you a gentle introduction to one component after the other. We +start by demonstrating how to plot various kind of data (from a file, a +function mapping x values to y values, a parametric function, a histogram). +Along the way, we introduce more and more concepts which you need to understand +in order to be able to make use of the full power of PyX's graphplotting +system.
