I’m running matplotlib 1.1.0 and would
like to plot pairs of values,

e.g.

[[0.27,0.43],[0.17,0.35]]

When using boxplot, the values of the
pairs correspond to the “outer whiskers”, but I would like that
the interquartile ranges correspond to the value pairs. The whiskers shall
NOT be shown.

The rationale behind the value pairs:
these pairs correspond to confidence intervals, and I would like to compare
confidence intervals from different measurements and thought that matplotlib
could help me.

Cheers & Thanks,

Paul

You lost me. Are you trying to create box and whisker plots or do you just
want rectangles? N = 2 is awfully small dataset for box/whisker plots. If
all you want are the rectangles -- use those directly:

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from matplotlib.patches import Rectangle

Indeed, I'm more interested in a rectangle, exactly as you showed it!

Your code and quick response is highly appreciated!
