Dear list,

I have a question concerning pcolor.
I am trying  to plot a huge 2d array 15000x10000.
And in top I see that the program already uses 31Gb of ram and it grows.
Is this expected behaviour?
Why it needs so much memory?
the sctipt is simple:

import matplotlib
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

from numpy.random import rand

import mpl_toolkits.basemap as bm


if __name__ == "__main__":

   print matplotlib.__version__
   print matplotlib.__revision__
   print matplotlib.__date__


   print 'basemap'
   print bm.__version__

   print 'numpy'
   print np.__version__


   x = rand(15000,10000)
   #print x
   plt.pcolor(x)
   plt.savefig('test_pcolor.png', bbox_inches = 'tight')
   print "Hello World"

matplotlib version is:
1.0.0
$Revision: 8503 $
$Date: 2010-07-06 08:56:31 -0500 (Tue, 06 Jul 2010) $

should I update?

thank you for any help
