This subroutine adds the specified label to the "current" Axis of the "current" chart..


      PASS         <axis_label>               FIELD            SHARE? N
      *        Check for error
      IF       0CD .AXIS LABEL ADD NEXT       NE


This routine adds the specified label to the label set associated with the "current" axis of the "current" xy chart. You must have selected a "current" axis via .AXIS SET CURRENT before calling this routine.

<axis_label> is the desired label for the next point on the specified axis.

By default, all axis labels will be associated major ticks. To associate a label with a minor tick, use '-' as the first character of the label. To draw a label without any tick at all, use '~' as the first character of the label.

Leading '-' or '~' characters are tick specification characters and will not appear on the labels. They just specify the the tick style to be associated with the labels. If you want have a label that actually begins these characters, add '\' as the first character as the escape character.

One common issue is that there may be too many labels on the axis. You can remove some labels by replacing them with empty strings. If you want to remove the label text but leave a major tick, use a " " as the label text.

The axis label becomes the "current" text spec and the "current" label spec.
