Because Gnuplot is setting the labels on the axis based on the width of the chart.

Adjust X & Y screen axis

I'm using my wife's Macbook, and I just noticed that her screen is off axis, but I can't find a way to adjust it. I've tried playing around with resolution in preferences, but nothing.

PYXPLOT(1)						      General Commands Manual							PYXPLOT(1)

pyxplot - a commandline data processing, graph plotting, and vector graphics suite. SYNOPSIS
pyxplot [file ...] DESCRIPTION
PyXPlot is a multi-purpose command-line tool for performing simple data processing and for producing graphs and vector graphics. The cen- tral philosophy of PyXPlot's interface is that common tasks -- for example, plotting labelled graphs of data -- should be accessible via short, simple and intuitive commands which require minimal typing to produce a first draft result. At the same time, these commands also take a sufficient range of optional arguments and settings to allow these figures to be subsequently fine-tuned into a wide range of dif- ferent styles, appropriate for inclusion in reports, talks or academic journals. As well as being a graph-plotting package, PyXPlot also has facilities for fitting mathematical functions to data, for numerically solving simple systems of equations, and for converting datafiles between different formats. Its mathematical environment can interpolate datasets, integrate and differentiate them, and take Fourier transforms. PyXPlot's ability to keep track of the physical units in which data are expressed, and to convert data between different units of measurement, mean that it can be used as a powerful desktop calculator. PyXPlot's interface bears some striking similarities to that of Gnuplot. Specifically, the commands used for plotting simple graphs in the two programs are virtually identical, though the syntax used for more advanced plotting often differs and PyXPlot's mathematical environ- ment is hugely extended over that of Gnuplot. This means that Gnuplot users will have a head start with PyXPlot: simple Gnuplot scripts will often run in PyXPlot with minimal modification. A number of examples of the graphical output which PyXPlot can produce may be found on the PyXPlot website: <>.
