Couple of questions on plotting

Hi, I'm relatively new to python and matplotlib and trying

    > I've tried to do something like this:

    > leg = figlegend(lines,(r'$r_f = 1.5d$',r'$r_f = 2d$',r'$r_f

    > set(legLbls,fontsize=24)

Please post a complete example.

You can set the tick locations and labels with the xticks or yticks
commands. For finer grained control, see the chapter in the users
guide of tick locating and formatting, and
http://matplotlib.sf.net/matplotlib.ticker.html

Your welcome!
