    Draw the graph as a simple representation with no node
    labels or edge labels and using the full Matplotlib figure area
    and no axis labels by default.  See draw_networkx() for more
    full-featured drawing that allows title, axis labels etc.

    Parameters
    ----------
    G : graph
       A networkx graph

    pos : dictionary, optional
       A dictionary with nodes as keys and positions as values.
       If not specified a spring layout positioning will be computed.
       See networkx.layout for functions that compute node positions.

    ax : Matplotlib Axes object, optional
       Draw the graph in specified Matplotlib axes.

    hold : bool, optional
       Set the Matplotlib hold state.  If True subsequent draw
       commands will be added to the current axes.

    **kwds : optional keywords
       See networkx.draw_networkx() for a description of optional keywords.

    Examples
    --------
    >>> G=nx.dodecahedral_graph()
    >>> nx.draw(G)
    >>> nx.draw(G,pos=nx.spring_layout(G)) # use spring layout

    Notes
    -----
    This function has the same name as pylab.draw and pyplot.draw
    so beware when using

    >>> from networkx import *

    since you might overwrite the pylab.draw function.

    Good alternatives are:

    With pylab:

    >>> import pylab as P #
    >>> import networkx as nx
    >>> G=nx.dodecahedral_graph()
    >>> nx.draw(G)  # networkx draw()
    >>> P.draw()    # pylab draw()

    With pyplot

    >>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
    >>> import networkx as nx
    >>> G=nx.dodecahedral_graph()
    >>> nx.draw(G)  # networkx draw()
    >>> plt.draw()  # pyplot draw()

       colors using the cmap and vmin,vmax parameters.  See
       matplotlib.scatter for more details.

    node_shape :  string, optional (default='o')
       The shape of the node.  Specification is as matplotlib.scatter

    Notes
    -----
    For directed graphs, "arrows" (actually just thicker stubs) are drawn
    at the head end.  Arrows can be turned off with keyword arrows=False.
    Yes, it is ugly but drawing proper arrows with Matplotlib this
    way is tricky.
