So, it is not a Mathematica built in. I am using Mathematica 5.0 here and I could not find it in help. Then I realized that I needed to create my own .m file and put it in the path. Thanks. I wonder if it already is a part of Mathematica 5.2 or is slated to be included in a future version. Seems too common and useful a kind of plot for it not to be a built in.
