Stumped trying to find basic info

I forgot to CC the list on my reply.

Perhaps the colors and styles deserve to have a table in the tutorial?

I've just started using matplotlib, and I'm stumped on where to
find basic info. I've search the users guide, tutorial, and
FAQ, and I can't find things as simple as a list of what the
color specifiers are. I've figured out that 'r' is red, 'k' is
black, but I can't figure out where stuff like that is

Likewise for line-style.

Where is the basic usage info at?

It's hiding in plain sight. Go to and scroll down. There will be a table of pylab commands, organized alphabetically. Click the "plot" link. Viola!
