  Function File: axis (LIMITS)
 Set axis limits for plots.
 Without any arguments, `axis' turns autoscaling on.

 octave:1> x=y = (0:10)';
 octave:2> plot (x,y) % will use default axis = autoscaling
 octave:3> axis ([1, 11, 1,11])
 octave:4> replot % will use axis ([1, 11, 1,11])
 octave:5> axis % should turn on autoscaling but gives wrong
 ans?
 ans =
 1 11 1 11
 octave:6> replot % autoscaling was turned on, thus ans not correct.
 octave:7> axis
 ans =
 1 11 1 11
Unfortunately, there is currently no way for axis to query the current
plot to get the limits of the data and give you those numbers. I'm
not sure what else it can do here. What should it return as values if
autoscaling has been turned on?
