I use a both latex and M$ Word for my technical reports, depending on the person I have to deliver it.
To generate my plot, I love using the tikz2pdf script given by Hans Meine but as far as it produce pdf, there is no interactive viewer, such as matplotlib viewer, to zoom in, move curve and so on to analyze my results before making a picture. The point is not to make up the graph, but be able to go deep in the analysis by zooming or moving with the mouse.
So I start using matplotlib to generate plot, in order to have the same tool to watch and analyze results and to produce pictures. The problem is that I didn't find a way to execute matplotlib from latex, such as gnuplot.
In an other hand, I don't like the gnuplot viewer to analyze my results, it is not very user-friendly.
So, my questions are :
- Is there a way to use tikz and have interactive viewer (wich interact with mouse action) ?
- Is there a way to manage matplotlib from latex ?
- Is there another viewer, more user-friendly to watch and analyze results ?
- Maybe other ideas ?
