40             <literal>isoview</literal> is used to have isometric scales on the x and y axes. 
41             It does not change the size of the graphics window. The rectangle
42             <literal>xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax</literal> will be contained in the computed frame of 
43             the graphics window. <literal>isoview</literal> set the current graphics scales 
44             and can be used in conjunction with graphics routines which request
45             the current graphics scale (for instance <literal>strf="x0z"</literal> in <literal>plot2d</literal>).
