I didn't know matlab had such a function, but it looks from your
description like it corresponds to the frame_on attribute of the
axes. You can turn the axes box off with, eg
ax = subplot(111, frame_on=False)
or for an existing axes instance
or with matlab-like handle graphics
( you can get the current axes instance wih gca() )
It just added a "box" wrapper function for pylab which
Turn the axes box on or off according to 'on'
If on is None, toggle state
ax = gca()
if on is None:
on = not ax.get_frame_on()
which is now in CVS. Let me know if this has the desired behavior...
