Using pylab.gcf(), we can create a fig variable and can set the fig.canvas.set_window_title('Setting up window title.') window title.StepsUsing gcf() method, get the current figure. If no current figure exists, a new one is created using ~.pyplot.figure().Set the title text of the window containing the figure, using set_window_title() method.. Note that this has no effect if there is no window (e.g., a PS backend).ExamplePlease use Ipython and follow the steps given below -In [1]: from matplotlib import pylab In [2]: fig = pylab.gcf() In [3]: fig.canvas.set_window_title('Setting up window title.')OutputRead More

We can use a user-defined method, autolabel, to annotate the axis value. Before that, we can initialize the fig and ax using plt.subplots() method.StepsCreate lists, labels, men_means, and women_means with different data elements.Return evenly spaced values within a given interval, using numpy.arrange() method.Set the width variable i.e., width=0.35.Create fig and ax variables using subplots method, where default nrows and ncols are 1.The bars are positioned at *x* with the given *align*\ment. Their dimensions are given by *height* and *width*. The vertical baseline is *bottom* (default 0), so create rect1 and rect2 using plt.bar() method.Set the Y-axis label using plt.ylabel() method.Set ... Read More
