set ylab option
Controls the format of Y-axis tick mark labels. The
option argument may be one of the following:
onlabeled tick marks are drawn with default characteristics
offlabeled tick marks are not drawn
formatgives a C-language template for conversion of the label value to a string
If the Y axis represents latitude, then the default behavior is to label the equator with "EQ" and append either "N" or "S" to all other tick mark labels depending on the hemisphere.
- Changes to the Y-axis tick mark labels are reset by clear, but not display.
This command would cause all Y-axis labels to have 2 digits after the decimal point:
set ylab %.2f
