matplotlib matplotlib - Python histogram outline

tutorial example (2)

It looks like either your linewidth was set to zero or your edgecolor was set to 'none'. Matplotlib changed the defaults for these in 2.0. Try using:

plt.hist(gaussian_numbers, edgecolor='black', linewidth=1.2)

I have plotted a histogram in Jupyter (Python 2) and was expecting to see the outlines of my bars but this is not the case.

I'm using the following code:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from numpy.random import normal
gaussian_numbers = normal(size=1000)
plt.title("Gaussian Histogram")

No, there isn't any string.contains(str) method, but there is the in operator:

if substring in someString:
    print "It's there!!!"

Here is a more complex working example:

# Print all files with dot in home directory
import commands
(st, output) = commands.getstatusoutput('ls -a ~')
print [f for f in output.split('\n') if '.' in f ]
