autoscale just one axis?

Is there a way to autoscale just the x axis or just the y

    > axis? Mike

Sort of, kind of. But not automatically <wink>

Turn off autoscaling for the given axes, either

  ax = subplot(111, autoscaleon=False)



Then, supposing you want to use the autoscaling (locator)
functionality for the x-axis but not y, do

  ax.set_ylim(somemin, somemax)
  locator = ax.xaxis.get_major_

With a minimal amount of work we could have an autoscalex and
autoscaley property so that these could be controlled separately.c
