11.2.2  Toggle the axes: switch_axes

The switch_axes command shows, hides or toggles the coordinate axes on the graphics screen depending on whether the argument is 1, 0 or empty. (This can also be controlled by a show axes checkbox in the configuration panel brought up with the cfg button on the graphic screen control panel.)

Entering
Input:

switch_axes()

toggles whether or not the coordinate axes are shown in subsequent graphic screens. Rather than toggling,
Input:

switch_axes(1)

causes all later graphic screens to have the axes, and
Input:

switch_axes(0)

causes all later graphic screens to omit the axes.

When the axes are visible, they have tick marks whose separation is determined by the X-tick and Y-tick values on the graphic configuration screen. Setting these values to 0 removes the axes.
