When i run the code below I get the following error.

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
def draw_square():
ax = matplotlib.axes(xlim = (0, 6), ylim = (0, 6))
square = matplotlib.Polygon([(1, 1), (5, 1), (5, 5), (1, 5)], closed = True)
if __name__ == '__main__':

Here comes the link to shared fil on onlinegdb

Now, I don't know how to use matplotlib, but, I don't think onlinegdb supports showing images in the terminal (or any compiler really).

You may want to download a nice compiler, like visual studio code and you need a bitmap(or an image) (not sure how to do that).

Btw, w3schools.org has a cool matplotlib tutorial, you can look there.

Hope this helped :)
