Changing the color axes

By default, the color axes are scaled with the maximum and minimum values of the data. This can be changed with the Caxis button as follows: \fbox{\Large Caxis \normalsize} Left button: Toggle between scaling with the maximum and minimum data values and using the values specified in suntans.dat. Specifically, if you add the following lines to your suntans.dat file, the data can be scaled with these color axes values when pressing the Caxis button:

caxismin   -0.25      # Minimum value for color axes
caxismax    0.25      # Maximum value for color axes
If these values are not in suntans.dat, an error will be indicated each time data is plotted until the Caxis button is hit again to return to the default scaling mode.
