[G-4] clockposstyle -- Choices for location: Direction from central point


clockposstyle is

# 0 <= # <= 12, # an integer


clockposstyle specifies a location or a direction.

clockposstyle is specified inside options such as the position() title_option (see [G-3] title_options) or the mlabposition() marker_label_option (see [G-3] marker_label_options):

. graph ..., title(..., position(clockposstyle)) ...

. graph ..., mlabposition(clockposlist) ...

In cases where a clockposlist is allowed, you may specify a sequence of clockposstyle separated by spaces. Shorthands are allowed to make specifying the list easier; see [G-4] stylelists.


clockposstyle is used to specify a location around a central point:

11 12 1 10 2 9 0 3 8 4 7 6 5

Sometimes the central position is a well-defined object (for example, for mlabposition(), the central point is the marker itself), and sometimes the central position is implied (for example, for position(), the central point is the center of the plot region).

clockposstyle 0 is always allowed: it refers to the center.
