That result looks good. The one quibble I have is the overall
aspect ratio is unity rather than the normal 3/4 ratio between y and x
range. Have a look at
http://plplot.sourceforge.net/examples-data/demo11/x11.08.png for comparison
purposes. Is aqt currently a "square" device with a default aspect ratio of
If you haven't done so yet, other tests (for yourself; probably nobody else
wants to see such tests in detail :-) ), are to try some variations with
really long x, y, z, and overall titles, try some variations with x and y
ranges that are multiplied by 10^30 and 10^-30 (to show what both the
positive and negative exponential notations look like for all axes), use
azimuths corresponding to all 4 quadrants, and try some variations with
azimuth very close to a multiple of 90 degrees to make sure all the axis
labels are done correctly in extreme cases.
It is great to see aqt.c maturing so nicely.
