How to set two sets of x axis labels?

Subject: How to set two sets of x axis labels?

Hi all,

I am not sure whether this is easy or not. But I am trying to plot y vs x. Because y is changing fast with x. So it is worth plotting. In the mean time, I also want to deal with z. However, z is changing slowly with x. Therefore, I want to choose some typical values and put them under the x axis (just text). It looks like the x axis has two sets of labels. I do not know how to do that in MATLAB. Please tell me if you know.
Thanks.

Have you tried plotyy?

help plotyy

There are other of these types of files on the FEX too. I think I saw a plotxx there once.

Take a look at this page from the documentation:
