     las: numeric in {0,1,2,3}; the style of axis labels.

          0: always parallel to the axis [default],

          1: always horizontal,

          2: always perpendicular to the axis,

          3: always vertical.

          Note that other string/character rotation (via  `par(srt =
          ..)') does not affect the axis labels.
