I plot something and Matlab auto chooses the axis step as 5, I want it 1.

how can i say that the step size should be 1.

I know you can use:

set(gca,'YTick',[1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 etc]);

but this is just too long :)

Accepted answer

xbounds = xlim; set(gca,'XTick',xbounds(1):xbounds(2));

A more compact form of the question:

Defining vectors and arrays is one of the absolutely fundamental basics in Matlab. Therefore the language is called "Mat(rix)lab". Reading the "Getting Started" chapters of the documentation explains the basic usage of Matlab exhaustively. Therefore reading them is strongly recommended, while a forum is not the right place learning this.
