Regarding the questions of axis(‘equal’) and axis(‘scaled’), I

submitted a patch for the axis(‘equal’) command about a month ago that

will turn it into the same behavior as matlab. After the axis(‘equal’)

command is given, the scale on both axes will be equal (such that a

circle looks like a circle). It has a little demo file with it as well.

Hopefully that will be implemented in CVS soon (let me know if I can

help here, John),

Mark

matlab also has a handy axis(‘tight’) command that sets tight limits on

the axes such that it contains all data tighly; that would be easy to

implement as well.
