This is a really stupid question except I do not know the answer. I have
installed PyX and can produce an EPS file but now I need to view the image.
Should I see a GUI when I go through the examples? Is there a recommended
Python package for viewing the things created in PyX.

While you don't know the answer, this question is not silly at all! Of
course, you want to be able to just view what you created. While you
could send the PostScript file directly to a PostScript printer, a
screen preview is indeed an important tool when creating figures with

While there are other options (like those from Adobe), you may install
ghostscript (a PostScript interpreter) and ghostview (a end user
application for viewing PostScript build around ghostscript). This
software is free available (with some restrictions) at
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/ for various plattforms.
