xtics

Purpose

Sets and fixes scaling, axes numbering and tick marks for the x-axis.

Note

This function is for the deprecated PQG graphics. Use plotSetXTicInterval() and plotSetXRange() for similar functionality.

Library

pgraph

Format

xtics(min, max, step, minordiv)
Parameters:
  • min (scalar) – the minimum value.
  • max (scalar) – the maximum value.
  • step (scalar) – the value between major tick marks.
  • minordiv (scalar) – the number of minor subdivisions.

Remarks

This routine fixes the scaling for all subsequent graphs until graphset() is called.

This gives you direct control over the axes endpoints and tick marks. If xtics() is called after a call to scale(), it will override scale().

X and Y axes numbering may be reversed for xy(), logx(), logy(), and loglog() graphs. This may be accomplished by using a negative step value in the xtics() and ytics() functions.
