Ah .. ok .. good to know. I was going by this note:

NOTE: 3D plotting has been removed from matplotlib >= 0.98. You'll either need
to use an older 0.91.x version or look at Mayavi which is actively maintained
and features an 'mlab' interface similar to matplotlib's 'pylab'.

Modified that section as to eliminate confusions:

NOTE: Experimental work has been going on to integrate 3D plotting functionality into matplotlib. Please see the related mplot3d documentation or take a look at matplotlib gallery for example 3D plots. For a more sophisticated 3D visualization and plotting interface, you can try Mayavi which is actively maintained and features an 'mlab' interface similar to matplotlib's 'pylab'.

hehe .. I know it sounded like a complaint, but it's really not. I
consider myself a lifelong student, and I love learning new things.
I just have a big appetite :-)


No matter how big an appetite you have, you can only digest certain amount of items at a time :)
Cheers for lifelong learning :)
