Convert the labels of a (logarithmic) axis to unit prefix notation: '1e-10' --> '100 ps'
All prefixes defined by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures are supported, except for deca, hecto, centi and deci; that leaves the 16 prefixes between 1e-24 (yocto) and 1e+24 (yotta).
Usage: loglabels(ax,unit,[whichaxis='x'])
ax: Handle of an axis
unit: String representation of the unit (e.g. 's' for seconds)
whichaxis: String representation of the axis to be changed ('x', 'y' or 'z'). This parameter is optional. If omitted, 'x' is used.

Example: loglabels(gca,'m','x');
Result: The x-axis label of the current axis is changed from '1e-9' to '1 nm'

@Stephen Cobeldick: You're right. I omitted those on purpose but didn't mention it in the description. The text is now updated!

Really? I don't see "da" (for Deca) listed in the Mfile.
