equally-spaced range of points.

That is to say, I want to say something like this:

plot(func, start, end)

rather than generating the X and Y values by hand, and plotting a scatter

graph. All the examples I've seen look something like this:

from pylab import *

import numpy as np

t = arange(0.0, 2.0+0.01, 0.01) # generate x-values

s = sin(t*pi) # and y-values

plot(t, s)

show()

which is fine for what it is, but I'm looking for an interface closer to

what my HP graphing calculator would use, i.e. something like this:

plot(lambda x: sin(x*pi), # function or expression to plot,

start=0.0,

end=2.0,

)

and have step size taken either from some default, or better still,

automatically calculated so one point is calculated per pixel.

Is there a way to do this in iPython or matplotlib?
