Colin,
Typically, with pylab mode of matplotlib, you do:
from pylab import *
This is essentially equivalent to:
from numpy import *
from matplotlib.pyplot import *
Note that the pylab "module" is actually a part of matplotlib and is a
shortcut to provide an environment that is very familiar to Matlab users.
Converts are then encouraged to use the imports you mentioned in order to
properly utilize python namespaces.
I hope that helps!
