plslabelfunc — Assign a function to use for generating custom axis labels


plslabelfunc(label_func, label_data)


This function allows a user to provide their own function to provide axis label text. The user function is given the numeric value for a point on an axis and returns a string label to correspond with that value. Custom axis labels can be enabled by passing appropriate arguments to plenv(3plplot), plbox(3plplot), plbox3(3plplot) and similar functions.

This function is used in example 19.
