I have a question (new user here): I have datasets of irregular
time spaced data and am having a problem with Matplot lib.

I am plotting two datasets: one is continuous time series
data (simple line chart) and the other irregular time series data.

The problem I have is: MatPlotLib is interpolating data for
the irregular data where there is no data.

So if I have data from 1985 – 1989 then no data for
1990 – 1994, matplotlib is drawing a line connecting the missing data.

How does one plot irregular spaced time series data?

Thanks

Joseph

p.s.: if this is the wrong forum, could you let me know where
to post?
