I just had a user ask me if the matlab function datetick exists in MPL. I don't believe that it does so I was wondering if anyone had written their own implementation of it?
Here's the help text from the matlab web site:
Label tick lines using dates
datetick(tickaxis) labels the tick lines of an axis using dates, replacing the default numeric labels. tickaxis is the string 'x', 'y', or 'z'. The default is 'x'. datetick selects a label format based on the minimum and maximum limits of the specified axis.
If no one has an existing implementation we'll probably write one ourselves.
