4.7.3 Creating pastable text
Pyxplot’s default convention of displaying numbers in a format such as
is well-suited for creating text which is readable by human users, but is less well-suited for creating text which can be copied and pasted into another calculation in another Pyxplot terminal, or for creating text which could be used in a latex text label on a plot. For this reason, the set numerics display command allows the user to choose between three different ways in which numbers can be displayed:
pyxplot> set numerics display natural
The first case is the default way in which Pyxplot displays numbers. The second case produces text which forms a valid algebraic expression which could be pasted into another Pyxplot calculation. The final case produces a string of latex text which could be used as a label on a plot.
