I am trying to produce a plot of data within a discrete number of

categories, such as data in a dict:

{'a':[0.3, 0.5], 'b':[0.9], 'c':[0.2, 0.4, 0.2]}

Except, rather than have the categories along the x-axis, and the

values on the y-axis, I need them the other way around. I know in the

boxplot() function, you can use the "vert" argument to tilt the plot

on its size (ie swap the axes), but is there an equivalent function

for other plots.

I guess what I'm looking for is a sideways boxplot, except plotting

the individual points, rather than the boxplot per se -- there are

only a small number of elements for each category, so a boxplot is not

appropriate.

Thanks in advance,
