plsxax — Set x axis parameters


plsxax(digmax, digits)


Sets values of the digmax and digits flags for the x axis.  See the PLplot documentation for more information.

Redacted form: plsxax(digmax, digits)

This function is used in example 31.


digmax (PLINT, input)

Variable to set the maximum number of digits for the x axis.  If nonzero, the printed label will be switched to a floating point representation when the number of digits exceeds digmax.

digits (PLINT, input)

Field digits value.  Currently, changing its value here has no effect since it is set only by plbox(3plplot) or plbox3(3plplot).  However, the user may obtain its value after a call to either of these functions by calling plgxax(3plplot).
