two matrices (or column vectors).
in the usual way
xis a matrix of the same size than
y(the column j of
yis plotted with respect to column j of
if all the columns of
xare equal (ie the abscissae of all the curves are the same),
xmay be simply the (column) vector of these abscissae (
xis then a column vector of length equal to the row dimension of
xis not given, it is supposed to be the column vector [1; 2; ...; row dimension of y].
is a real row vector of size nc. The style to use for curve
iis defined by
style(i). The default style is
1:nc(1 for the first curve, 2 for the second, etc.).
style(i)is negative or zero, the curve is plotted using the mark with id
xset()to set the mark id and xget('mark') to get the current mark id.
style(i)is strictly positive, a plain line with color id
style(i)or a dashed line with dash id
style(i)is used; use
xset()to see the color ids.

axes are drawn centred in the middle of the frame box.
axes are drawn so as to cross at point

Ny) is the number of graduations on the x (y) axis.
a string formed by to characters h (for horizontal axis) and v (for vertical axis) each of these characters can take the values "n" or "l". "l" stands for logarithmic graduation and "n" for normal graduation. For example "ll"stands for a log-log plot. Default value is "nn".
plot2d plots a set of 2D curves. Piecewise linear
plotting is used.
By default, successive plots are superposed. To clear the previous
