Set y axis parameters


plsyax(digmax, digits)


Identical to plsxax(3plplot), except that arguments are flags for y axis. See the description of plsxax(3plplot) for more detail.

Redacted form: plsyax(digmax, digits)

This function is used in examples 1, 14, and 31.


digmax (PLINT(3plplot), input)

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

digits (PLINT(3plplot), 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 plgyax(3plplot).
