I tried the code you supplied and I didn't get it to work with the *angles*
keyword, I got:
"ValueError: shape mismatch: objects cannot be broadcast to a single shape"
I have matplotlib.__version__ = '0.98.5.2'.
Although after thinking about it for a while I did:
from scipy import *
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
X,Y = meshgrid(arange(64),arange(64)) # a bit bigger just to see what it
looks like
angles = arange(0,4*pi,4.*pi/X.size) # just creating a set of angles
u = cos(angles)
v = sin(angles)
c = arange(u.size) # the colours!
c.shape = X.shape
plt.quiver(X, Y, u, v, c, pivot='middle',minlength=0.04, width=0.05,
headwidth=1,scale=50)
that is, the angles are converted to "u" and "v" parameters.
Anyway. That is how I got it working.
