I am not sure if this forum is appropriate to ask question about a
particular package. After getting suggestions from some of you for python
based plotting, I have just started with matplotlib. I am bit confused with
the relation between matplotlib and pylab.

In the matplotlib homepage, example plots are shown with both *
matplotlib.pyplot* and* pylab*. Inaddition within matplotlib, there is a
module called *matplotlib.pylab*

i) matplotlib and pylab -> both are same or different modules ?. Is there
any advantage of using one over the other ?

ii) Is it like i can plot the graphs with both matplotlib and pylab ?

iii) can some kindly show me an example of ploting multy Y axes plot, ie

Thanks in advance,
