   Progress, of a sort. :-)

   The listing is:




   \pstScalePoints(1,1){1989 sub}{3 sub}

   \rput{90}(-3,6.25){Precipitation (in.)}


   I get an error for line 16 (the \begin{psgraph}... line):

(/usr/share/texmf/tex/generic/multido/multido.tex  v1.42, 2010/05/14 <tvz>)
  v1.16, 2010/05/14)) (./precip.aux)
! Missing = inserted for \ifnum.
<to be read again>
l.16 ...2008,Oy=2,subticks=2](0,0)(12,4){6in}{3in}

   When I look in the pst-plot doc (page 26) where the psaxes options are
supposed to be explained, I find only the polar option. What does the frame
option do? I'm trying to learn where I've made the error but the doc isn't
helping me.

   The data file (precip1.dat) is attached.
