Ok. 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.
