PLOT3

 

 Plot lines and points in 3-D space.

  PLOT3() is a three-dimensional analogue of PLOT3DFTRE7().

 

 

  PLOT3(x,y,z), where x, y and z are three vectors of the same length,

  plots a line in 3-space through the points whose coordinates are the

  elements of x, y and z.

 

 

  PLOT3(X,Y,Z), where X, Y and Z are three matrices of the same size,

  plots several lines obtained from the columns of X, Y and Z.

 

 

  Various line types, plot symbols and colors may be obtained with

  PLOT3(X,Y,Z,s) where s is a 1, 2 or 3 character string made from

  the characters listed under the PLOT3DFTRE7 command.

 

 

  PLOT3(x1,y1,z1,s1,x2,y2,z2,s2,x3,y3,z3,s3,...) combines the plots

  defined by the (x,y,z,s) fourtuples, where the x's, y's and z's are

  vectors or matrices and the s's are strings.

 

 

  Example: A helix:

 

 

      t = 0:pi/50:10*pi;

      plot3(sin(t),cos(t),t);

 

 

  PLOT3 returns a column vector of handles to LINE2N0GCXR objects, one

  handle per line. The X,Y,Z triples, or X,Y,Z,S quads, can be 

  followed by parameter/value pairs to specify additional 

  properties of the lines.
