colorbar on LEFT side of figure ?

Hi,

I have been unable to place a colorbar on the LEFT side of a figure.
For example, in the Gaussian
noise with vertical colorbar
demo, how can the colorbar be
positioned on the left side of the figure.

Thanks,

– jv

Create your own axes instance for the colorbar (as in http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/multi_image.html).
