Brian,

you can certainly draw arbitray diagonal lines using proc line, but these
would be just lines, not axes.

I found a Skew-T Log P example on the web
http://www-das.uwyo.edu/~geerts/cwx/notes/chap07/skewt_ggw.gif

which appears to have a log Y axis and a linear X axis, also the diagonal
lines. If you can figure out a way to draw all these lines using standard
x y coordinates you might be able to get something to work... otherwise I
guess ploticus isn't a solution for you. -Steve

Steve,

Thank you very much for the quick response. I will play around a
little with it, but for continuity of analyzing these graphs, we
really need the skewed x axis gridlines.

I must say however, Ploticus seems like a powerful tool, and I will
keep this in mind for future projects.

Best regards,

Brian
