Re: [ferret_users] Time tics every year

Hi Billy and All,

Actually this works! The secret is to put ppl TXTYPE,yr,multiyr in between plot/set and ppl plot. I missed that before.

Thank you very much!

Ah, that's the famous TXTYPE command. You can read the documentation and try to figure it out. I can't. I just do trial and error every time. (In fairness to Ferret, this is inherited stuff from PPLUS).

TXTYPE,TYPE,STYLE  ! type=days,mon,yr(def); style=hr,hrday/day,daymon/mon1,mon3,monyr

Hi William,

It partly works now, but all the years are labelled with tics. How do I do if I want tic every year but label every 10 years?

Many thanks,

This should work. Are you putting the TXLINT command between PLOT/SET and the final PPL PLOT command?

This is not a "persistent" command (like PPL AXLINT, for example). You must give it each time.

Hi William,

Thanks. But this does not work either. It does not control the tics at all.

Any other solution? Desperately appreciated!

I tried many ppl commands like TXNMTC, AXNMTC, AXATIC but none works. The tics show up well if I change the window ratio to very wide, though, however I don't like it that way. The automatic setting is annoying here.

ppl txlint,low,high             time axis lab intervals (0,1=yr only; 1,0=mon only; 3,1=every 3 mon+yr; 10,0=every 10 years, no months)
