Source code for matplotlib.gridspec

:mod:`~matplotlib.gridspec` contains classes that help to layout multiple
`~.axes.Axes` in a grid-like pattern within a figure.

The `GridSpec` specifies the overall grid structure. Individual cells within
the grid are referenced by `SubplotSpec`\s.

See the tutorial :doc:`/tutorials/intermediate/gridspec` for a comprehensive
usage guide.
