Q-Q Plot

Hi all,

If anyone hasn't noticed already. I've been somewhat semi-perusing the
Matlab interface and trying to port over any plotting functionality not
current present in mpl.

The other day I made a bit of a mess up regarding functionality I didn't
think existed but actually did (discussion here:
https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/1068)

I'm sending a message here because I've found another one I don't think
currently exists in mpl:
http://www.mathworks.co.uk/help/toolbox/stats/qqplot.html

I wanted to check with everyone here (who probably know better!) before
I started anything.

Thanks!
Damon

Damon,

When the current state of the relevant python libraries, scipy is
required to create a QQ plot. Therefore, matplotib will never be able
to natively make QQ or probability plots. I've got a PR into the the
statsmodels project to do just what you need (and more!).
https://github.com/statsmodels/statsmodels/pull/412

It'll probably be a while before I get that PR up to par with the rest
of statsmodels, so in the meantime, I suggest you use the existing
functionality in statsmodels or roll your own.

Good luck,
-paul
