Scilab manual >> Compatibility Functions > mtlb_axis


Matlab axis emulation function

Calling Sequence

mtlb_axis(axeshandle, ...)



a vector of reals ([xmin xmax ymin ymax] or [xmin xmax ymin ymax zmin zmax])


a string ('auto', 'manual', 'tight', 'ij', 'xy', 'equal', 'square', 'vis3d', 'off', 'on')


handle of the current axes entity


Matlab axis have not a Scilab equivalent function.

The function mtlb_axis(...) is used by mfile2sci to replace axis(...) when it was not possible to know what were the inputs while porting Matlab code to Scilab. This function will determine the correct semantic at run time (axis fill, axis image and axis normal are not implemented). If you want to have a more efficient code it is possible to replace mtlb_axis call by get(axeshandle, prop) call (prop is a axes property, see axis_properties)

Caution: mtlb_axis has not to be used for hand coded functions.
