# This example shows how in gnuplot version 5 a nonlinear axis definition
# can be used to set up log-scale axes.  This mechanism replaces a special-case
# logscale implementation provided by previous versions of gnuplot.
# The pair of commands
#	set nonlinear x via log10(x) inverse 10**x
#	set xtics log
# is equivalent to the pre-v5 command
#	set logscale x
# The "set logscale" command is still accepted as a shortcut.
#
# This plot is the same as plot #2 in electrom.dem showing log-scaled axes.
