hi all,

is there a way to plot separated axes in matplotlib? i.e. plots where

the origin (0,0) has no meaning, either because the data on the x axes

is categorical (e.g. you are plotting a histograms for three

categories) or for other reasons. an example of what i mean is this

graph:

or this: http://msenux.redwoods.edu/math/R/graphics/hist1.gif

any advice on how to do this would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
