Thanks to ppurka, we are finally very close to having easily usable
log-scale plots. We would like to take two votes (if anyone cares) on
commands for log plots and semilog plots. See http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/4529
for background and examples.
Where it happens (vote for one):
[ ] Only in special commands like loglog_plot and the like, and not in
usual commands like plot_*. That is, one could not take a plot and
then later decide whether or not to show it with a different scale.
On the plus side, it would be obvious that one couldn't add two plots
with different scales.
[ ] In all (or most) plot commands, but then have the plot scale in
different axes be handled by keywords/parameters called "scale" and
"base" for plot_* but handled in the .show() and .save() methods
[ ] Some combination of the above (probably having a few commands like
loglog_plot and semilog_plot and loglog_list_plot which automatically
would put in the correct show parameters).
What actual function names to have (vote for as many as you like):
[ ] loglog_plot
[ ] semilog_plot(logaxis='x/y')
[ ] semilogx_plot/semilogy_plot
[ ] loglog_list_plot
[ ] semilog_list_plot(logaxis='x/y')
[ ] semilogx_list_plot/semilogy_list_plot
