[Matplotlib-users] Converting dates into a suitable format for MatPlotLib

I have a series of dates of the form (YYYY, mm, dd, (hh/24)) as output from
the module jd2gcal.  hh/24 = the fractional part of a day represented as a
decimal, i.e. 12/24 = 0.5 so my data would look like this for December 21,
2015 at 12:00 UTC:


                (2015, 12, 21, 0.5)


Is there a way to convert the above string into a date format suitable for
plotting in MatPlotLib?  There doesn't seem to be a format representation
for a fractional day in Python as far as I can tell.  I'm a newbie, so type
slowly. J


Many thanks for any assistance!
