some quick answers:
matlplotlib's histogram uses numpy histogram for the calculations,
options are pretty well explained in the numpy docs, matplotlib has
docs and examples for the display.
If I use numpy.histogram, then, I think, I used bar plot for the
display (scipy.stats.tutorial might also have an example where I had
taken the pattern from somewhere else)
numpy also has 2d and multidimensional histogram, but I don't know if
the new 3d features of matplotlib can display them.
