The sherpa.plot module

A visualization interface to Sherpa.

Classes provide access to common plotting tasks, which is done by the plotting backend defined in the options.plot_pkg setting of the Sherpa configuration file. Note that plot objects can be created and used even when only the sherpa.plot.backends.BasicBackend is available.
