Compute breaks for continuous scale.

This function wraps up the components needed to go from a continuous range to a set of breaks and labels suitable for display on axes or legends.

cbreaks(range, breaks = extended_breaks(), labels = scientific_format())
numeric vector of length 2 giving the range of the underlying data
either a vector of break values, or a break function that will make a vector of breaks when given the range of the data
either a vector of labels (character vector or list of expression) or a format function that will make a vector of labels when called with a vector of breaks. Labels can only be specified manually if breaks are - it is extremely dangerous to supply labels

# You can also specify them manually:

cbreaks(c(0, 100), breaks = c(15, 20, 80), labels = c(1.5, 2.0, 8.0))
cbreaks(c(0, 100), breaks = c(15, 20, 80),
  labels = expression(alpha, beta, gamma))
