[resent, plus small addition; I do not understand why gmail sent a
weird charset.]

to do this, I first need to compute the function slope around x[5], which is an easy task. alas, the harder task is that I need to scale this by the plot aspect ratio and the axes. How can a function read this from the current plot?

(Has someone written such a function, perhaps more embellished, to save me the debugging effort?)

Or, is there an alternative to srt, which slopes the text relative to the existing scale?

- come to think of it, what I would really like is the ability of text to 'snake' itself along the line itself. I doubt that this is easily possible, but I just wanted to ask.

help appreciated.

sincerely,

/ivo welch
