[Matplotlib-users] How to plot tick values in-place

I haven't been able to find a solution to this problem with google, 
perhaps someone here can help. When I plot the following:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plot
plot.plot([0, 1e-9, 0, -1e-9])
the y tick marks are shown as -1, -0.5, 0, 0.5, 1 and their scaling is 
given elsewhere, how can I make matplotlib write the entire number at 
tick location so I don't have to search for potential corrections to 
tick values in other parts of the plot? matplotlib.__version__ is 
'1.1.1'. Thanks!
