Missing files on the web documentation

Hi,

The documentation presented on http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples is a very good source of information but on some pages it doesn’t give all the data needed to have the example running.

Indeed, some example needs external files and they are not given in the web documentation, for example :

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/user_interfaces/mpl_with_glade.html needs “mpl_with_glade.glade”

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/user_interfaces/embedding_in_wx3.html needs “…/data/embedding_in_wx3.xrc”

I thing there should be some links on the web pages to download theses files.
At least, it should be said in the docstring where to find them, don’t you think ?

It would be a good idea -- but for now you can grab the source
distribution *.tar.gz from the download page and look in the
"examples" subdirectory. All the code, data and support files are
there (the web examples are automatically built from this directory).
If you are on a linux/unix box or any box that has an svn client, the
easiest way is to just check out::

  svn co https://matplotlib.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/matplotlib/trunk/matplotlib
matplotlib
  cd mpl/examples

or if you just want the examples rather than the whole source tree::

  > svn co https://matplotlib.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/matplotlib/trunk/matplotlib/examples
mpl_examples

but I suggest getting the source because some of the examples only run
on svn and you may want to install from svn to use them
