A few weeks ago, I was asking about the grid lines on a log-log plot.
pointed out that the tick placement command (set xtics) works differently in
the Pre 3.6 version in that if the axis is logarithmic, the increment
is used as a multiplicative factor. This does indeed work on my 32bit microsoft windows version.
My question is: How difficult would it be to have an option to have the tick placement
work like it did in version 3.5? (for example, if the increment is negative, then revert to 3.5 method)
Using the 3.5 method, set xtics 1000,500,10000 would place a tick mark every 500 in the range 1000
I (and other engineers here) use GNUPLOT 3.6 for most plotting (75%), and GNUPLOT 3.5 for LOG-LOG
plotting (25%). It would be nice to only need one version.
