Plot Ranges

Calling Sequence

plot(f, x=low..hi, y=low..hi, options)

Parameters

f

-

function(s)

x=low..hi

-

function argument and real range (range optional)

y=low..hi

-

label for the vertical axis and real range (both optional)

options

-

plot options (optional)

Description

• 

The horizontal and vertical range specifications define the horizontal and vertical ranges over which the function(s) are displayed.

• 

If no range is specified, a default range is used for the horizontal range. If one range is specified, this is taken as the horizontal range, and a label for the vertical axis may be specified by simply stating the name as a parameter, but not giving it a range. If the vertical range is unspecified, a suitable range will be deduced from the values computed.

• 

The default range is normally 2π..2π when f is a trigonometric function and 10..10 otherwise.

• 

The low and hi elements of an axis range must be real constants. This includes numbers, plus or minus infinity and constants such as Pi and exp(4).

• 

If either infinity or -infinity is included in an axis range specification then an infinity plot is computed.

Examples

plottan,π..π,5..5

plotsinx,x

plotcosx,x=π..π,y=1..1

plotsinx,x=π..π,`y axis`
