I'm not sure what the problem is -- the scaling is logarithmic either way so the distance between successive powers of 10 will be equal to each other, i.e. log(1000)-log(100) equals log(100)-log(10) regardless of whether the base of the logs is 10 or e. Maybe what you want is labeling on powers of 10? for example:

xscale(log) xlabel(100 1000 10000)

Hello, I apologize if there is a simple answer to this question, but
I've searched the archives and FAQs and I can't seem to find one. Is
there a way to generate log base 10 axes for twoway plots? the
xscale(log) produces axes with a natural log scale. Thanks much, Tim
