where does register_cmap come from?

When I try to import register_cmap from matplotlib, matplotlib.colors, or any
of the other likely candidate modules in which it might be contained, I get
a "cannot import" error. It would be great if the documentation indicated
how to import this and provided at least one working example.

We do. plt.register_cmap works for me with SVN HEAD and it looks
like it's present in 0.99. You probably just have an older version,
as register_cmap is a recent addition. What version of matplotlib do
you have installed?

python -c 'import matplotlib;print matplotlib.__version__'

Try updating. That should fix it.

It seems that you're using an older version of matplotlib.
register_cmap is available in the current version of mpl, which is
0.99.1. And the example works fine.

While it is best if the documentation states which functionality
became available at which version, unfortunately it is not. If you
want to contribute, it is always welcomed.

I downloaded the latest version of EPD and installed, and register_cmap now works.

Thanks!

Re. working on the documentation: I'd be happy to contribute. How do I edit the docs?

While it is best to submit a patch against svn,

For simple changes, you may just post those changes in this mailing list.
