Your chances of a useful response would likely increase if your
question were clearer. You say your data is log (base 10). I have
no idea what that means; log of what?
You want the x-axis to be bi-exponential? I *think* I have an
inkling of what you mean, but I have no idea what you want to
plot. Perhaps if you could explain clearly how you would do this
"by hand", it might make more sense.
It would be *very* useful to have some sample data to look at.
