 # What about a "subplots" function ?

Hi again,

while browsing the docs about axes, I found this example, which seems to be a
recurrent "pattern" each time one wants to draw subplots in a figure:

cnt = 0
for i in range(numRows):
for j in range(numCols):
cnt+=1
ax=subplot(numRows,numCols,cnt)
plot(blah,blah)
if ax.is_last_row() : xlabel('time(s)')
if ax.is_first_col(): ylabel('volts')

Indeed, I've written such code many times now. It seems to me that the use of
subfigures could be make easier with such "subplots" function as:

for ax in subplots(numRows,numCols):
plot(blah,blah)
if ax.is_last_row() : xlabel('time(s)')
if ax.is_first_col(): ylabel('volts')

What do you think ?

Hi,
using generators the fuction would go like this:
def subplots(numRows,numCols):
cnt = 0
for i in range(numRows):
for j in range(numCols):
cnt+=1
ax=subplot(numRows,numCols,cnt)
yield ax

right ?

Yes, exactly. I'd be interested in
having your opinion on the convenience of this vs the standard use of
subplot()...

cheers,
