plotting a parabola

Hi, everyone! Is it possible to use blender to plot a parabola? What i need to accomplish is plotting two parabolas in perpendicular planes (say, xy and xz). It is sort of displaying 2d plots in 3d.
Is there a “function plotter” in blender? or should a script be used?
I know it’s a thing you would normally do in mathcad or something but i certainly hope that blender can do the thing :smiley:

go to the wiki script list
and download the sript for parabola and paraboloid
that should be make it eaxsy to make parabola

but won’t do what you can do in matcad!
