 Re: Plotting problem with y scaling

```Thank you for your solution!

Still, I don't like the idea to be forced to use such a mechanism just
to choose the y scaling.

some think like
ploth(x=-5,5,1/(x^2+x^3),4,[-5,5]);

should be useful and simpler.
I think autoscaling is a nice feature only if it stay an option.
Look at
? plot(x=-2,2,x^2)

It is exactly the same graph!

If we want to see a difference, we must use scales with the same X/Y
ratio.
