I'm using the minipage package to position two graphs, generated by gnuplot, side-by-side. I use the epslatex terminal. The graphs are rather small, and I'd like to increase their size by reducing the gap between each graph and its (vertical) y-axis label. How can I do this?
set ylabel command can be given an optional x or y position offset. Beware though, for me, Gnuplot 4.4 gave errors relating to a missing semicolon. The older Gnuplot 4.2.4 worked fine. For example:
set ylabel "angels" 5
For Gnuplot 4.4, use the keyword "offset". For example:
set ylabel "angels" offset 2
