Further to Titus Winters' excellent guide "PyX Tutorial for Gnuplot
Users", PyX users also may be interested in a gnuplot-like interface which
I have developed for PyX, and which I have made available for download
from http://www.pyxplot.org.uk/ .
The idea of this project was originally to write a script which would
allow plots to be produced from a quick-and-simple gnuplot-like command
environment, but at the same time with all of the elegance which PyX
brings. It grew into a rather bigger project than I originally envisaged,
and now supports a substantial subset of gnuplot's API, as well as having
many new features which I'd always been frustrated that gnuplot didn't
I would be very pleased to hear feedback if others find this useful.

Just want to make sure you know of PyXGraph:
Quite a different intent, but perhaps enough overlap at some
level to enable some code sharing.
I am not sure your announcement really lets people
understand what you have done.
I'm inclined to advertise:
"Think of PyXPlot as gnuplot++ for the Python crowd:
high-quality interactive command line graphics".
Or something along that line.

Another front-end I would like to see for PyX is some kind
of diagram environment: arrows joining boxes, etc. Something
like the "dot" utility. I haven't quite got itchy enough to
do this myself yet.

I would guess that NetworkX could be adapted to use PyX as=20
a back end...
