## usage: plot3 (x, y, z)
##        plot3 (x1, y1, z1, x2, y2, z2, ...)
##        plot3 (x, y, z, fmt)
##
## If all arguments are vectors of the same length, a single line is
## drawn in three space.
##
## If all arguments are matrices, each column is drawn as a separate
## line. In this case, all matrices must have the same number of rows
## and columns and no attempt is made to transpose the arguments to make
## the number of rows match.
##
## To see possible options for FMT please see __pltopt__.
##
## Example
##
##    z = [0:0.05:5];
##    plot3(cos(2*pi*z), sin(2*pi*z), z, ";helix;");
