Plotting method for objects inheriting from class `"ts"`

.

## S3 method for class 'ts': plot(x, y = NULL, plot.type = c("multiple", "single"), xy.labels, xy.lines, panel = lines, nc, yax.flip = FALSE, mar.multi = c(0, 5.1, 0, if(yax.flip) 5.1 else 2.1), oma.multi = c(6, 0, 5, 0), axes = TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'ts': lines(x, ...)

`x, y` |
time series objects, usually inheriting from class `"ts"` . |

`plot.type` |
for multivariate time series, should the series by plotted separately (with a common time axis) or on a single plot? |

`xy.labels` |
logical, indicating if `text()` labels
should be used for an x-y plot, or character, supplying a
vector of labels to be used. The default is to label for up to 150
points, and not for more. |

`xy.lines` |
logical, indicating if `lines`
should be drawn for an x-y plot. Defaults to the value of
`xy.labels` if that is logical, otherwise to `TRUE` . |

`panel` |
a `function(x, col, bg, pch, type, ...)` which gives the
action to be carried out in each panel of the display for
`plot.type="multiple"` . The default is `lines` . |

`nc` |
the number of columns to use when `type="multiple"` .
Defaults to 1 for up to 4 series, otherwise to 2. |

`yax.flip` |
logical indicating if the y-axis (ticks and numbering)
should flip from side 2 (left) to 4 (right) from series to series
when `type="multiple"` . |

`mar.multi, oma.multi` |
the (default) `par` settings
for `plot.type="multiple"` . Modify with care! |

`axes` |
logical indicating if x- and y- axes should be drawn. |

`...` |
additional graphical arguments, see `plot` ,
`plot.default` and `par` . |

If `y`

is missing, this function creates a time series
plot, for multivariate series of one of two kinds depending on
`plot.type`

.

If `y`

is present, both `x`

and `y`

must be univariate,
and a “scatter” plot `y ~ x`

will be drawn, enhanced by
using `text`

if `xy.labels`

is
`TRUE`

or `character`

, and `lines`

if
`xy.lines`

is `TRUE`

.

`ts`

for basic time series construction and access
functionality.
