Changing the Figure _window_ title


in Matlab, it is possible to set the figure window title by using:

figure('Name','Simulation Plot Window')

You can even disable the numbering (i.e. the “Figure 1:” tag in the title) by using:

figure('Name','Simulation Plot Window','NumberTitle','off')

Is there some way of doing a similar thing with matplotlib/pylab?

The reason I need this is that I use a python script to do plots. I call this script several times to create several plots, and each plot ends up with the same title (Figure 1). As I cannot create all the plots from a single script call, I am stuck with these identical window titles.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
