The only way I'm aware of doing this in Matlab is with handle graphics syntax that isn't supported in octave. If I understand correctly, part of the rationale for ripping out gset and related commands in octave was to make it easier to write a handle graphics module that could theoretically support all of that eventually. Until someone writes such a module, you are probably justified in using __gunplot_raw__ to do things like this if you need it.When you do help axis, you get  Function File: axis (LIMITS) Set axis limits for plots. The argument LIMITS should be a 2, 4, or 6 element vector. The first and second elements specify the lower and upper limits for the x axis. The third and fourth specify the limits for the y axis, and the fifth and sixth specify the limits for the z axis. which is clear enough, but how can you, for example, let the xaxis be automatic, and set limits for the yaxis only? I couldn't find an example of that usage of axis. (I'm still trying to replace all of my old gset commands with "proper Octave.") Joe
