units.py

00001 """
The classes here provide support for using custom classes with
matplotlib, eg those that do not expose the array interface but know
how to converter themselves to arrays.  It also supoprts classes with
units and units conversion.  Use cases include converters for custom
objects, eg a list of datetime objects, as well as for objects that
are unit aware.  We don't assume any particular units implementation,
rather a units implementation must provide a ConversionInterface, and
the register with the Registry converter dictionary.  For example,
here is a complete implementation which support plotting with native
datetime objects
