**Description **

```
ribbon(Y)
```

plots the columns of `Y`

as separate three-dimensional ribbons using `X = 1:size(Y,1)`

.

```
ribbon(X,Y)
```

plots `X`

versus the columns of `Y `

as three-dimensional strips. `X`

and `Y`

are vectors of the same size or matrices of the same size. Additionally, `X`

can be a row or a column vector, and `Y`

a matrix with `length(X)`

rows.

```
ribbon(X,Y,width)
```

specifies the width of the ribbons. The default is `0.75`

.

```
h = ribbon(...)
```

returns a vector of handles to surface graphics objects. `ribbon`

returns one handle per strip.
