set xlint

set xlint interval

Specifies the interval between labeled tick marks on the X-axis.

Usage Notes

  1. If interval is a positive value, the labeled tick marks will 'start' at 0, regardless of the current dimension environment. For example, if you set the interval to 3, the labeled tick marks will be at 0, 3, 6, 9 ...

  2. If interval is a negative value, the labeled tick marks will 'start' at the axis start value, which is usually the lower limit of the X dimension environment. If this were 30 (with an interval of 10), then the labeled tick marks would be at 30, 40, 50, 60...

  3. This command is overridden by the set xlevs command.

  4. This command will override the X-axis tick mark interval specified with the set xaxis command.

  5. Reset by clear, but not display.

  6. This command does not apply to a date/time axis.

  7. set xlint and set ylint may not work as described when used to control grid lines for polar stereographic projections.
