NAME

axispar -- Edit the parameter set that describes axis attributes.

USAGE

axispar

DESCRIPTION

The axispar parameters specify the attributes of plot axes.

Note that this is a pset, not an executable task; it defines a set of parameters used by other tasks. Invoking the pset by name runs eparam on the parameter set, allowing the user to modify the parameters. Alternatively, the parameters may be modified on the command line by specifying the pset name and parameter name, for example, you can type "axispar.xflip=no" to turn off the xflip parameter. Parameters can also be edited by using eparam on the calling task (e.g., by typing "eparam sgraph"), in which case, axispar will appear as one of the task parameters; the axispar parameters can then be edited by positioning the cursor on the line containing the pset name and typing ":e". After editing the pset parameters, type ^Z to return to the main task parameter menu.

PARAMETERS

(wl = 0.) [real]
Left world X-coordinate if not autoscaling.
(wr = 0.) [real]
Right world X-coordinate if not autoscaling.
(wb = 0.) [real]
Lower world Y-coordinate if not autoscaling.
(wt = 0.) [real]
Upper world Y-coordinate if not autoscaling.
(xflip = no) [boolean]
Flip the autoscaled X axis?
(yflip = no) [boolean]
Flip the autoscaled Y axis?
(transpose = no) [boolean]
Transpose the X and Y axes of the plot?

If transpose = no, the horizontal axis will have the X values or pixel number.

(logx = no) [boolean]
Scale the X axis logarithmically?
(logy = no) [boolean]
Scale the Y axis logarithmically?
(box = yes) [boolean]
Draw the box containing the axes and labels around the edge of the window?
(ticklabels = yes) [boolean]
Label major tick marks?
(grid = no) [boolean]
Draw grid lines on the plot?
(xlabel) [string]
X-axis label.
(ylabel) [string]
Y-axis label.
(title = imtitle) [string]
The plot title may consist of one or two lines of text. If the parameter sysid is set to "yes", then the first line of the title is a standard system-supplied string containing the user's name, date, etc. If the title parameter contains the string "imtitle" (the default), then the plot title will contain a line made up from the input file, image, or table name. The user can supply an optional string for the title parameter---this string will replace the string resulting from the "imtitle" specification.
(sysid = yes) [boolean]
Include standard system information in the plot title?

If the sysid parameter is set to "yes", then a string including the user's name, date, host name, etc. is included in the plot title.

(lintran = no) [boolean]
Perform a linear transformation of the X axis?
(p= 0.) [real]
Starting input pixel value if lintran = yes.
(p= 0.) [real]
Ending input pixel value if lintran = yes.
(q= 0.) [real]
Starting output pixel value if lintran = yes.
(q= 1.) [real]
Ending output pixel value if lintran = yes.
(majrx = 5) [integer]
Number of major divisions along the X grid.
(minrx = 5) [integer]
Number of minor divisions along the X grid.
(majry = 5) [integer]
Number of major divisions along the Y grid.
(minry = 5) [integer]
Number of minor divisions along the Y grid.
(round = no) [boolean]
Round axes to nice values? (Values at tick marks will be significant, based on scale of the data.)
(margin = INDEF) [real, min = 0, max = 1]
The margin between the viewport edges (plot axes) and the limits of the plotted curve(s) as a fraction of the viewport (NDC). If 'margin = INDEF', the default, a 2.5% margin will apply. That is, the plotted curve(s) will be inset .025 times the size of the viewport. Set margin = 0 to plot curves to the axes.

(version = 17August92) [string]
Date the task was installed. Do not change this parameter.
