scrollplot(dx, x1, y1, x2, y2, ...)
Designed to inspect long timeseries: it shows a section of the data and allows the user to horizontally scroll the view. A smart loading of the data allows the inspection of otherwise untreatable long timeseries.
Plots every yn versus xn in a subplot. All subplots have common x limits. The user can horizontally scroll the view using a scrollbar. The horizontal view size is dx. If yn is a row or a column the n-th subplot is a line. If yn is a matrix each column is a line in the n-th subplot. An example is shown in the screenshot.

Thank you, Luca! This is exactly what I was looking for!

Good job, pitty it doesn't cover both horizontal and vertical scrolling.

Norbert Marwan

It's a nice extension of a Matlab plot. However, a Matlab conform notion of the command itself (all lowercase) should be prefered.
