"Matlab-like" plotting library

Issue 1521: contour doesnot work

Reported by Tianzhu Qiao, Jan 5, 2015

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. install 0.46
2. run the contour demo from scilab help
   function z=my_surface(x, y),z=x*sin(x)^2*cos(y),endfunction

Expected result: 
show the contour figure

Actual result:
 !--error 202 
unglue: Wrong type for input argument #1: Handle matrix expected.

I think the problem is gca()/gcf()(since it is different from the 
default scilab ones). If I change the gca & gcf to _gca & 
_gcf. The above code runs fine. Thanks!

Dear Tianzhu

I have the same problem of you. What do you mean with "change 
the gca & gcf to _gca & _gcf"?

Dear Alberto,

I think the problem is that plotlib overwrites the default 
gca()/gcf() functions, and returns different handlers than the 
original functions. Thus, contour gets confused. 

I rename the gca()/gcf() in plotlib to _gca()/_gcf(), and rebuild 
the plotlib (update buildmacros.sce accordingly). It seems that it 
works fine now.

Best Regards,
Tianzhu Qiao

seems like i ran into the same issue but my system is ubuntu while 
my colleague uses windows and everything runs smoothly though all 
the steps we did were the same since the task from 
http://essay.expert/ was the same..so do you think that the problem 
lies within OS??
