anglestyle specifies the angle at which text is to be displayed.


anglestyle is specified inside options such as the marker-label option mlabangle() (see [G-3] marker_label_options),

. graph ..., ... mlabel(...) mlabangle(anglestylelist) ...

or the axis-label suboption angle() (see [G-3] axis_label_options):

. graph ..., ... ylabel(..., angle(anglestyle) ...) ...

For mlabangle(), an anglestylelist is allowed. An anglestylelist is a sequence of anglestyles separated by spaces. Shorthands are allowed to make specifying the list easier; see [G-4] stylelists.
