# plotframe

plot a frame with scaling and grids. **This function is obsolete.**

### Calling Sequence

plotframe(rect,tics,[arg_opt1,arg_opt2,arg_opt3]) plotframe(rect,<opts_args>)

### Arguments

- rect
vector

`[xmin,ymin,xmax,ymax]`

.- tics
vector

`[nx,mx,ny,my]`

where`mx, nx`

(resp.`my, ny`

) are the number of x-axis (resp. y-axis) intervals and subintervals.- arg_optX
optional arguments up to three and chosen among.

- flags
vector

`[wantgrids,findbounds]`

where`wantgrids`

is a boolean variable (`%t`

or`%f`

) which indicates gridding.`findbounds`

is a boolean variable. If`findbounds`

is`%t`

, the bounds given in`rect`

are allowed to be slightly modified (in fact always increased) in order to have simpler graduations: then`tics(2)`

and`tics(4)`

are ignored.- Captions
vector of 3 strings

`[title,x-leg,y-leg]`

corresponding respectively to the title of the plot and the captions on the x-axis and the y-axis. Warning: the upper-case "C" is important.- subwin
a vector of size 4 defining the sub window. The sub window is specified with the parameter

`subwin=[x,y,w,h]`

(upper-left, width, height). The values in`subwin`

are specified using proportion of the width or height of the current graphics window (see`xsetech`

).

- <opts_args>
This represents a sequence of statements

**key1=value1**,**key2=value2**,... where**key1**,**key2**,... can be one of the following:**tics**,**flags**,**captions**ou**subwin**. These arguments have the same meaning as the ones used in the first form of the routine.

### Description

`plotframe`

is used with 2D plotting functions
plot2d, plot2d1,... to set a graphics frame. It must be
used before `plot2d`

which should be invoked with the
"000" superposition mode.

**This function is obsolete..**

### Examples

x=[-0.3:0.8:27.3]'; y=rand(x); rect=[min(x),min(y),max(x),max(y)]; tics=[4,10,2,5]; //4 x-intervals and 2 y-intervals plotframe(rect,tics,[%f,%f],["My plot","x","y"],[0,0,0.5,0.5]) plot2d(x,y,2,"000") plotframe(rect,tics=tics,flags=[%t,%f],Captions=["My plot with grids","x","y"],subwin=[0.5,0,0.5,0.5]) plot2d(x,y,3,"000") plotframe(rect,tics,[%t,%t],.. ["My plot with grids and automatic bounds","x","y"],[0,0.5,0.5,0.5]) plot2d(x,y,4,"000") plotframe(rect,flags=[%f,%t],tics=tics,.. Captions=["My plot without grids but with automatic bounds ","x","y"],.. subwin=[0.5,0.5,0.5,0.5]) plot2d(x,y,5,"000")
