axes bug?

Hi All,

I get what I consider to be a bug. (I think) the following code should produce a 10 row, 6 column figure with identical plots. However, this code (with current CVS matplotlib), displays a 10 row, 6 column figure with plots of apparently varying x and y limits...

Even adding "set(gca(),'xlim',(1,3)); set(gca(),'ylim',(4,6))" does not help.

Am I confused, or is this a bug?

Cheers!
Andrew

#!/usr/bin/env python

from matplotlib.matlab import *

n_rows = 10
n_cols = 6

row_height = 1.0/n_rows
col_width = 1.0/n_cols

figure()
for row in range(n_rows):
    for col in range(n_cols):
        axes([ col*col_width, row*row_height,
                    (col+1)*col_width, (row+1)*row_height ])
        plot([1,2,3],[4,5,6])
show()

Arrg!

OK, reading the docstring for axes, I find out that the 3rd and 4th argument are width and height, (not right and top). This all works fine. I was confused...

Cheers!
Andrew
