i am drawing a 2x3 set of subplots. i want it to eliminate the second
subplot of the first row and instead make the first subplot on the
first row take up two plots worth of space, i.e. have it so that the
first subplot takes up 2,3,1 and 2,3,2. In matlab, the command would
be something like subplot(2,3,[1,2]).
what is the way to do this in matplotlib? i have a lot of code
structured subplots and subplots_adjust, and i really want to avoid
switching to drawing my own axes if possible, as in this example:
switching to this would be very complicated -- is there a way to do
this while still using the subplot command?
