Is there any bit arithmetic behind this from the manual: axis = 2: No box or annotation. axis = 1: Draw box only. axis = 0: Draw box, labeled with coordinate values around edge. axis = 1: In addition to box and labels, draw the two axes X = 0 and Y = 0. axis = 2: Same as axis = 1, but also draw a grid at the major tick interval. axis = 10: Logarithmic X axis, linear Y axis. axis = 11: Logarithmic X axis, linear Y axis and draw line Y = 0. axis = 20: Linear X axis, logarithmic Y axis. axis = 21: Linear X axis, logarithmic Y axis and draw line X = 0. axis = 30: Logarithmic X and Y axes. I am wondering whether I should define the values above, or if there are more fundamental values that should then be combined to create the parameter value?? Is there a way to get ticks without labels? My question is in the spirit of hopefully setting up a condition consistent with "it's better to be lucky than good." I don't have a specific problem in mind; instead, I am reaching a point where I would naturally start to create what Smalltalk programmers call a pool dictionary, and want to get it right from the beginning (less to undo later).
