Input Parameters
           legitem - What legend information should be drawn. These

                       data  -  Information about data displayed in
                                current plot. Draws line/color
                                according lines.
                       result-  Information about last fit result.
                       param -  Information about (selected)
                                parameters of fit.

                      interpretation depends on the legend type.
           pos      - Position (in normal coordinates) of legend to
                      plot at. This must be a 2 component float
                      vektor with [xpos, ypos] being the coordinates
                      of the upper left corner.
           top      - Plot at top position.
           bottom   - Plot at bottom position.
           left     - Plot at left position.
           right    - Plot at right position.
           mouse    - Define legend position via mouse click. Move
                      the mouse in current plot window until desired
                      position is reached and click with any mouse
           nobox    - Do not plot a box frame around all legend
        noadjust    - Do not try to adjust position to keep the
                      legend within the plot frame.
           All options may be set with the "set" command. The
           command prefix is "legend".
Side Effects
           Changes plot drawn.
               > plot, data,delchi, 2
               > legend, data,/left
                -> plot data information on plot at left side.
