"""
Provides a MATLAB-like plotting framework.

:mod:`~matplotlib.pylab` combines pyplot with numpy into a single namespace.
This is convenient for interactive work, but for programming it
is recommended that the namespaces be kept separate, e.g.::

    import numpy as np
    import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

    x = np.arange(0, 5, 0.1);
    y = np.sin(x)
    plt.plot(x, y)

    Parameters
    ----------

    num : integer or string, optional, default: none
        If not provided, a new figure will be created, and the figure number
        will be incremented. The figure objects holds this number in a `number`
        attribute.
        If num is provided, and a figure with this id already exists, make
        it active, and returns a reference to it. If this figure does not

        If num is a string, the window title will be set to this figure's

    figsize : tuple of integers, optional, default: None
        width, height in inches. If not provided, defaults to rc
        figure.figsize.

    dpi : integer, optional, default: None
        resolution of the figure. If not provided, defaults to rc figure.dpi.

    facecolor :
        the background color. If not provided, defaults to rc figure.facecolor

def subplot(*args, **kwargs):
    """
    Return a subplot axes positioned by the given grid definition.

    Typical call signature::

      subplot(nrows, ncols, plot_number)

    Where *nrows* and *ncols* are used to notionally split the figure
    into ``nrows * ncols`` sub-axes, and *plot_number* is used to identify
    the particular subplot that this function is to create within the notional
    grid. *plot_number* starts at 1, increments across rows first and has a
    maximum of ``nrows * ncols``.

    In the case when *nrows*, *ncols* and *plot_number* are all less than 10,
    a convenience exists, such that the a 3 digit number can be given instead,
    where the hundreds represent *nrows*, the tens represent *ncols* and the
    units represent *plot_number*. For instance::

      subplot(211)

    produces a subaxes in a figure which represents the top plot (i.e. the
    first) in a 2 row by 1 column notional grid (no grid actually exists,
    but conceptually this is how the returned subplot has been positioned).

    .. note::

       Creating a new subplot with a position which is entirely inside a
       pre-existing axes will trigger the larger axes to be deleted::

          import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
          # plot a line, implicitly creating a subplot(111)
          plt.plot([1,2,3])
          # now create a subplot which represents the top plot of a grid
          # with 2 rows and 1 column. Since this subplot will overlap the
          # first, the plot (and its axes) previously created, will be removed
          plt.subplot(211)
          plt.plot(range(12))
          plt.subplot(212, axisbg='y') # creates 2nd subplot with yellow background

       If you do not want this behavior, use the
       :meth:`~matplotlib.figure.Figure.add_subplot` method or the
       :func:`~matplotlib.pyplot.axes` function instead.

    Keyword arguments:

      *axisbg*:
        The background color of the subplot, which can be any valid
        color specifier.  See :mod:`matplotlib.colors` for more
        information.

      *polar*:
        A boolean flag indicating whether the subplot plot should be
        a polar projection.  Defaults to *False*.

      *projection*:
        A string giving the name of a custom projection to be used
        for the subplot. This projection must have been previously
        registered. See :mod:`matplotlib.projections`.

      *squeeze* : bool

          arrays.

        - for NxM subplots with N>1 and M>1 are returned as a 2d
          array.

        If *False*, no squeezing at all is done: the returned axis
        object is always a 2-d array containing Axis instances, even if it

      *fig_kw* : dict
        Dict with keywords passed to the :func:`figure` call.  Note that all
        keywords not recognized above will be automatically included here.

    Returns:

      - *fig* is the :class:`matplotlib.figure.Figure` object

    This is a do-nothing function to provide you with help on how

    Commands which take color arguments can use several formats to

    single letter

      =====   =======
      Alias   Color
      =====   =======
      'b'     blue
      'g'     green
      'r'     red
      'c'     cyan
      'm'     magenta
      'y'     yellow
      'k'     black
      'w'     white
      =====   =======

    For a greater range of colors, you have two options.  You can
    specify the color using an html hex string, as in::

      color = '#eeefff'

    or you can pass an R,G,B tuple, where each of R,G,B are in the
    range [0,1].

    You can also use any legal html name for a color, for example::

      color = 'red'
      color = 'burlywood'
      color = 'chartreuse'

    The example below creates a subplot with a dark
    slate gray background::

       subplot(111, axisbg=(0.1843, 0.3098, 0.3098))

    Here is an example that creates a pale turquoise title::

def colormaps():
    """
    Matplotlib provides a number of colormaps, and others can be added using
    :func:`~matplotlib.cm.register_cmap`.  This function documents the built-in
    colormaps, and will also return a list of all registered colormaps if called.

    You can set the colormap for an image, pcolor, scatter, etc,
    using a keyword argument::

      imshow(X, cmap=cm.hot)

    or using the :func:`set_cmap` function::

      imshow(X)
      pyplot.set_cmap('hot')
      pyplot.set_cmap('jet')

    In interactive mode, :func:`set_cmap` will update the colormap post-hoc,
    allowing you to see which one works best for your data.

    All built-in colormaps can be reversed by appending ``_r``: For instance,
    ``gray_r`` is the reverse of ``gray``.

    There are several common color schemes used in visualization:

    Sequential schemes
      for unipolar data that progresses from low to high
    Diverging schemes
      for bipolar data that emphasizes positive or negative deviations from a
      central value
    Cyclic schemes
      meant for plotting values that wrap around at the
      endpoints, such as phase angle, wind direction, or time of day
    Qualitative schemes
      for nominal data that has no inherent ordering, where color is used
      only to distinguish categories

    The base colormaps are derived from those of the same name provided
    with Matlab:

    not :class:`LinearSegmentedColormap`.  Different sets of colors are
    recommended for different numbers of categories.  These continuous

                    maintains an aesthetically pleasing color image that
                    automatically reproduces to a monotonic grayscale with
                    discrete, quantifiable saturation levels." [#]_
      cubehelix     Unlike most other color schemes cubehelix was designed
                    by D.A. Green to be monotonically increasing in terms
                    of perceived brightness. Also, when printed on a black
                    and white postscript printer, the scheme results in a
                    greyscale with monotonically increasing brightness.
                    This color scheme is named cubehelix because the r,g,b
                    values produced can be visualised as a squashed helix
                    around the diagonal in the r,g,b color cube.

    Plot the data in in a file.

    *cols* is a sequence of column identifiers to plot.  An identifier
    is either an int or a string.  If it is an int, it indicates the
    column number.  If it is a string, it indicates the column header.
    matplotlib will make column headers lower case, replace spaces with
    underscores, and remove all illegal characters; so ``'Adj Close*'``
    will have name ``'adj_close'``.

    - If len(*cols*) == 1, only that column will be plotted on the *y* axis.

    - If len(*cols*) > 1, the first element will be an identifier for
      data for the *x* axis and the remaining elements will be the
      column indexes for multiple subplots if *subplots* is *True*
      (the default), or for lines in a single subplot if *subplots*
      is *False*.

    *plotfuncs*, if not *None*, is a dictionary mapping identifier to
    an :class:`~matplotlib.axes.Axes` plotting function as a string.
    Default is 'plot', other choices are 'semilogy', 'fill', 'bar',
    etc.  You must use the same type of identifier in the *cols*
    vector as you use in the *plotfuncs* dictionary, e.g., integer
    column numbers in both or column names in both. If *subplots*
    is *False*, then including any function such as 'semilogy'
    that changes the axis scaling will set the scaling for all
    columns.

    *comments*, *skiprows*, *checkrows*, *delimiter*, and *names*
    are all passed on to :func:`matplotlib.pylab.csv2rec` to
    load the data into a record array.

    If *newfig* is *True*, the plot always will be made in a new figure;
    if *False*, it will be made in the current figure if one exists,
    else in a new figure.

    kwargs are passed on to plotting functions.
