Need to add a entry for "build/texinfo" in the list in check_build() in order to make sure the directory exists.

This seems to work reasonably well. Is there a texinfo viewer that displays the images?

Contributor

tkf commented Aug 3, 2012

Emacs's info viewer displays images, in principle. It works well when I build other info documents based on sphinx. But the only figure I found in the info page is http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/screenshots.html#eeg-demo. Probably there is some problem in plot directive when used with texinfo builder?

It's quite possible something is going wrong here.

Pardon my ignorance about this stuff, but how do I load the results of this build into emacs so I can test it?

I think the easiest way to open info file is to do:

M-x info-open-file RET PATH/TO/matplotlib/doc/build/texinfo/matplotlib.info RET

Thanks to @JonWaltman (tkf/matplotlib#1), plot directive works with texinfo build target.

There is no reason to not get this into 1.2.x. Any other issues before we merge?

This looks good to me.
