I am such a matplotlib newbie... but it looks very cool.

I need to create a basic graph, EXCEPT the x axis needs to go down the page,

and the y axis is across the bottom. (The chart is to display drilling

information and the norm for drilling engineers is to display depth - the x

axis - down the left side of graphs).

Can matplotlib do this? Just point me in the right direction... I'll figure

it out.

Thanks in advance...

Starting with the obvious -- x and y are arbitrary, so instead of

plot (x, y)

you can

plot(y, x)

If you need the data to be descending (smaller values on top, larger

values on bottom) you can invert the normal ordering with

ylim(big_value, small_value)

If neither of these is what you are looking for, please elaborate a bit.

That does the trick. I assumed that swaping the plot parameters would cause

other problems, but it doesn't.

That was simple!

Thanks!
