<h2><b>set xlint</b></h2>

<p>
<code>set xlint <i>interval</i></code>

<p>
Specifies the <code><i>interval</i></code> between labeled tick marks
on the X-axis.


<p>
<h3>Usage Notes</h3>
<ol>
<li>If <code><i>interval</i></code> is a positive value, the labeled tick marks will
'start' at <code>0</code>, regardless of the current dimension environment. 
For example, if you set the <code><i>interval</i></code> to
<code>3</code>, the labeled tick marks will be at <code>0, 3, 6, 9</code> ...
<p>
<li>If <code><i>interval</i></code> is a negative value, the labeled tick marks
will 'start' at the axis start value, which is usually the lower limit
of the X dimension environment. If this were <code>30</code> (with an
<code><i>interval</i></code> of <code>10</code>), then the labeled tick marks would
be at <code>30, 40, 50, 60</code>...

<p>
<li>This command will override the X-axis tick mark interval specified with the
<a href="gradcomdsetxaxis.html"><code>set xaxis</code></a> command. 
<p>
<li>Reset by <a href="gradcomdclear.html">clear</a>, but not <a

<li>This command does not apply to a date/time axis. 
<p>
<li><code>set xlint</code> and <a href="gradcomdsetylint.html"><code>set ylint</code></a> 
may not work as described when used to
control grid lines for polar stereographic projections.
