Subject: [Matplotlib-users] Different plot settings for different
        circumstances ...

So, is there a way to decouple the plot settings (like figure size,
axes properties, tick properties, etc) from the data being plotted. If
so, can someone give some examples.

Cheers,

We are using csv files (like a database) to store settings for various
things and then iterating through the records to change settings for each
plot and for different plot types. (line vs. scatter).

For our purpose we are building a little plotting utility called 'PyroGraph'
that is helping us with this task. Currently it makes about 900 plots in
about 200 seconds on my computer. Under 'docs' there is a ReadMe.txt file
that explains the purpose of the csv files.
