setting axis limits

One can set axis limits via a command like the following:

pyplot.axis([0 10 0 1])

But, there are situations where I'd like to set limits only for the y-axis,
leaving the x-axis alone, or vice versa, or set a lower limit for the y-axis
but leave the upper limit alone. Is there a clean way of doing this? (I
have not been able to find anything relevant in the Matplotlib Users Guide).

Please check set_xlim and set_ylim.

Experimenting in ipython (run ipython --pylab) is excellent for this; not only do you see results promptly, but

help(pylab)

lists, for instance, the functions xlim and ylim, with which you can get and set any of the four axis limits.
