Simple matplotlib-related utility functions.

## Project description

plotutils
=========

This is where I keep matplotlib-related plotting utility functions I have found useful.

setfig
------
This will create a new figure (same as plt.figure() call in matplotlib):
python
from plotutils.plotutils import setfig
setfig(None)

You can also set the current figure to be a given figure number, clear it, and start over, e.g.: setfig(3).

setfig(0) will do nothing, implying you want to overplot on the currently active figure.

I use the setfig function in every function that I write that makes a plot, almost always as follows:

python
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
def my_plot(x,y,fig=None,**kwargs):
setfig(fig)
plt.plot(x,y,**kwargs)
