Taurus Plot module (old)¶
This module is now deprecated.
If available, it exposes the plot API now implemented in taurus.qt.qtgui.qwt5. Otherwise it tries to provide a minimal API (essentially the TaurusPlot and TaurusTrend classes from taurus_pyqtgraph) to help with the transition to another plotting module such as taurus.qt.qtgui.tpg.
Note that if you really want to continue using the old Qwt5-based widgets and avoid deprecation warnings, you can import the old API from taurus.qt.qtgui.qwt5
Note that PyQwt5 module only works with Python2 and PyQt4 and is no longer supported, so taurus is moving to other modules for plotting (pyqtgraph, silx, ...)
converts a date string in iso format to a timestamp (seconds since epoch) with microseconds precision if available
