The following code plots to two PostScript (.ps) files, but the second one contains both lines.
import matplotlib
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib.mlab as mlab
plt.subplot(111)
x = [1,10]
y = [30, 1000]
plt.loglog(x, y, basex=10, basey=...

So, it seems one cannot do the following (it raises an error, since axes does not have a set_linewidth method):
axes_style = {'linewidth':5}
axes_rect = [0.1, 0.1, 0.9, 0.9]
axes(axes_rect, **axes_style)
and has to use the following old trick instead:...

After these instructions in the Python interpreter one gets a window with a plot:
from matplotlib.pyplot import *
plot([1,2,3])
show()
# other code
Unfortunately, I don't know how to continue to interactively explore the figure created by show() while ...

In maptplotlib, one can create a heatmap representation of a correlation matrix using the imshow function. By definition, such a matrix is symmetrical around its main diagonal, therefore there is no need to present both the upper and lower triangles. For ...
