I am fairly new to programing and have a question regarding matplotlib. I wrote a python script that reads in data from the outfile of another program then prints out the data from one column.
f = open( 'myfile.txt','r')
for line in f:
if line != ' ':
line = line.strip() # Strips end of line character
columns = line.split() # Splits into coloumn
mass = columns # Column which contains mass values
What I now need to do is have matplotlib take the values printed in 'mass' and plot number versus mean mass. I have read the documents on the matplotlib website, but they don't really address how to get data from a script(or I just did not see it) If anyone can point me to some documentation that explains how I do this it would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance
