I’m tinkering with a modified version of http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/screenshots/barchart_demo.py :
# a bar plot with errorbars # a bar plot with errorbars from pylab import * N = 5 menMeans = (20, 35, 30, 35, 27) menStd = ( 2, 3, 4, 1, 2) ind = arange(N) # the x locations for the groups width = 0.35 # the width of the bars p1 = bar(ind, menMeans, width, color='r', yerr=menStd) womenMeans = (25, 32, 34, 20, 25) womenStd = ( 3, 5, 2, 3, 3) p2 = bar(ind+width, womenMeans, width, color='y', yerr=womenStd) ylabel('Scores') title('Scores by group and gender') xticks(ind+width, ('G1', 'G2', 'G3', 'G4', 'G5') ) xlim(-width,len(ind)) yticks(arange(0,41,10)) legend( (p1, p2), ('Men', 'Women'), shadow=True) show()
would like to shrink the graph height to a third or a fourth of its
present value, and possibly cut the padding. How can I control that?
