Small demonstration of the hlines and vlines plots.

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
from numpy import sin, exp,  absolute, pi, arange
from numpy.random import normal

def f(t):
    s1 = sin(2 * pi * t)
    e1 = exp(-t)
    return absolute((s1 * e1)) + .05

t = arange(0.0, 5.0, 0.1)
s = f(t)
nse = normal(0.0, 0.3, t.shape) * s

fig = plt.figure(figsize=(12, 6))
vax = fig.add_subplot(121)
hax = fig.add_subplot(122)

vax.plot(t, s + nse, 'b^')
vax.vlines(t, [0], s)
vax.set_xlabel('time (s)')
vax.set_title('Vertical lines demo')

hax.plot(s + nse, t, 'b^')
hax.hlines(t, [0], s, lw=2)
hax.set_xlabel('time (s)')
hax.set_title('Horizontal lines demo')
