Octave can display more than one plot in a single figure. The simplest
way to do this is to use the
subplot function to divide the plot
area into a series of subplot windows that are indexed by an integer.
subplot (2, 1, 1) fplot (@sin, [-10, 10]); subplot (2, 1, 2) fplot (@cos, [-10, 10]);
creates a figure with two separate axes, one displaying a sine wave and
the other a cosine wave. The first call to subplot divides the figure
into two plotting areas (two rows and one column) and makes the first plot
area active. The grid of plot areas created by
numbered in column-major order (top to bottom, left to right).
Set up a plot grid with rows by cols subwindows and plot in location given by index.
If only one argument is supplied, then it must be a three digit value specifying the location in digits 1 (rows) and 2 (columns) and the plot index in digit 3.
The plot index runs row-wise. First all the columns in a row are filled and then the next row is filled.
For example, a plot with 2 by 3 grid will have plot indices running as follows:+-----+-----+-----+ | 1 | 2 | 3 | +-----+-----+-----+ | 4 | 5 | 6 | +-----+-----+-----+
index may be a vector. In which case, the new axis will enclose the grid locations specified. The first demo illustrates an example:demo ("subplot", 1)
