Graphics keyword phrase 'borders:word' controls on which sides of a
  graph borders should be drawn. Possible values for 'word' are "all",
  "none" or some combination of "B", "L", "T", and "R" or their lower
  case counterparts.

Keywords: plotting, files, output
By default, borders are drawn on all four sides of a graph, providing a
rectangular frame.  You can modify this behavior using graphics keyword
phrase 'borders:word', where word is a quoted string or character
scalar.  If word isn't "all" (the default) or "none", it must contain
only the characters 'B' (bottom), 'L' (left), 'T' (top) or 'R' (right),
or their lower case counterparts 'b', 'l', 't' and 'r'.  Value "" is
equivalent to "none".

Keyword phrase 'borders:word' also sets the edges where tick marks will
be drawn, unless 'ticks:word' is also an argument.  See topic

  Cmd> plot(x,y,borders:"LB") # or plot(x,y,borders:"lb")
This produces a plot with border and ticks drawn only at left and

  Cmd> plot(x,y,borders:"none") # or plot(x,y,borders:"")
This produces a plot with no border or ticks drawn.
