Unable to generate html docs

The problem seems to be that process_docs.py is expecting

Yep, this is a doc bug in the README file. You need to first build the
class docs from the matplotlib root

   > make htmldocs

This will build all the matplotlib html class docs in the 'docs'
subdir, which process_docs.py assumes are there. If all you want are
the class docs, this is all you will need to do. process_docs and the
rest of the files in htdocs build the matplotlib web site.

I've updated the README file -- thanks for letting me know.



Great to see another release with lots of improvements. Motivated by your
new FAQ and the web page about interactive usage, I tried interactive.py

The good news is I got it to work and it looks very handy indeed. It has
autocomplete! Yay!

The bad news is it didn't work first go (and I think this is why I didn't
try it out earlier):

~/downloads/matplotlib/examples$ ./interactive.py
: No such file or directory

The above fails, but the below works. I tried changing the first line from

#!/usr/bin/env python



But it didn't help, even though that works on other scripts of mine. But
the below works:

~/downloads/matplotlib/examples$ python ./interactive.py
Welcome to matplotlib.

    help(matlab) -- shows a list of all matlab compatible commands
    help(plotting) -- shows a list of plot specific commands

plot([1, 2, 3])

[<matplotlib.lines.Line2D instance at 0x8399054>]

Interactive use easily justifies me wrapping this with a script so I can
jump into it easily form the command line, but I thought this might affect
other people trying interactive.py for the first time. I'm not quite sure
how to debug the problem. I'm using bash under Linux by the way.
