To plot the graph use: @ERASE @DRAW
When you observe the graph being plotted, you'll notice that the graph is not
very smooth. That is because the plotter is using a time step that may be a bit
large for a smooth graph. To refine the graph and make it smoother, use a step
of 0.1. Press @CANCL and change the Step : value to 0.1, then use @ERASE @DRAW
once more to repeat the graph. The plot will take longer to be completed, but
the shape is definitely smoother than before. Try the following: @EDIT L @LABEL
@MENU to see axes labels and range.
Notice that the labels for the axes are shown as 0 (horizontal, for t) and 1
(vertical, for x). These are the definitions for the axes as given in the PLOT
SETUP window („ô) i.e., H-VAR: 0, and V-VAR: 1. To see the graphical
