What is a good way to avoid this "colour bleeding" problem? If we want
to colour only the lines (but use no fillings), then this looks very ugly:
Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 4 Pi}, PlotStyle -> Thick,
ColorFunction -> (If[Sin[#] >= 0, RGBColor[1, 0, 0],
RGBColor[0, 0, 1]] &), ColorFunctionScaling -> False]
One solution I found is the following:
Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 4 Pi}, PlotStyle -> Thick,
ColorFunction -> (If[Sin[#] >= 0, RGBColor[1, 0, 0],
RGBColor[0, 0, 1]] &), ColorFunctionScaling -> False,
Exclusions -> {Pi, 2 Pi, 3 Pi}]
But Exclusions was not designed for this. I am not confortable using it
because I am afraid that it might skip a section of the curve as with
Exclusions -> {Sin[x] == 0}.
1. Is there a more appropriate way to force Plot to calculate the
function value at certain points?
2. Is there a way to avoid having to find the zeros of the function
manually? (More generally: avoid having to calculate the points where
the colouring changes abruptly.)
