I am still very green when it comes to the use of matplotlib but I am finding the versatility and robustness of the package extremely useful at present. One application I am constantly using matplotlib for concerns a break in the axis. Although I have a script or two based on an original from http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/manual_axis.html I am curious to put something together that automates the process for my own purposes. In doing this I have come across the PyX graph.axis.split() command. I am wondering if the simple way that pyx makes the break could be simply relayed in matplotlib.
The question is then: has anybody tried this before? (as to be honest I have a few other things to do)
