downloadable docs?

I live in a third world part of the US where internet
access is via modem so reading the matplotlib docs via
the internet very painful. A full afternoon trying to
build the docs was unsuccessful.

Is there anyplace where I can download pre-built HTML
of all the docs (not just the User Manual)?

My build-html folder is 111.8 MB totaling 4.215 files.

7z compression makes it down to 72 MB. tar.lzma 85 MB, and tar.bz2 92MB

As far as I know having a recent version of Sphinx, you should be able to build the documentation yourself. What problems are you seeing?

PDF version ~8MB might be the best option providing that you have low-speed internet
http://matplotlib.sf.net/Matplotlib.pdf

I have python-2.6, matplotlib-0.99.1, spinx-0.6.5 installed on
Fedora-11 via Fedora's package management system. I unpacked the
matplotlib source in a tmp dir, cd'd to the doc/ dir, did "python
make.py html" and got a lot of warnings and errors that I do not
recall. Figuring it maybe needed the local src built, I cd'd to
matplotlib and did a "python setup.py build" which went ok.
Retried the doc "python make.py html" -- this time failed
when trying to build the examples/pylab_examples/loadrec.py
example: could not import xlwt. Downloaded, installed xlwt.
Still fails on same example, this time with core dump.
(For brevity I've left out a lot of other things I tried.)
Gave up. :frowning:

Yes, after looking at it, I think it will do fine. I posted
while downloading it and didn't realize the api doc was included.
I guess what I am actually missing is only the examples. If I
was doing something silly in my attempt to build above (was in a
rush so read the install instructions pretty quickly) I 'll give
it another try. Otherwise I think I can live without ther examples,
or access them online.

Thanks for your response.
