 [Gnuplot-info] minor ticks on logaritmic axis From: Bo Jakobsen - 2014-06-06 14:58:00 Dear all I am trying to understand how gnuplot sets minor tics on a logaritmic scale and if that is "correct" running the following minimal example: set logscale x set xrang [10:100] set yrang [1:10] set mxtics 4 plot "

 Re: [Gnuplot-info] minor ticks on logaritmic axis From: BBands - 2014-06-06 21:19:34 This seems correct to me. set logscale x set logscale y set xrang [1:100] set yrang [1:100] set mxtics 10 set mytics 10 set grid mxtics mytics plot " wrote: > Dear all > > I am trying to understand how gnuplot sets minor tics on a logaritmic > scale and if that is "correct" > > running the following minimal example: > > set logscale x > set xrang [10:100] > set yrang [1:10] > set mxtics 4 > plot " > shows that minor tics are sat at 25,50, and 75 > > The first interval represents a smaller linear range (10-25) whereas the > later 3 represents a range of 25. > It that what is expected for minor tics on a log scale. > > setting mxtics to 8 is even worse I now gets minor tics at: 12.5, 50, > 37.5 ... > in which the first interval only represents 2.5 on a linear scale, and > the minor tics seems totally out of place > > Does any one here know what is the correct way to put minor tics?
