plot {graphics} | R Documentation |
Generic function for plotting of R objects. For more details about
the graphical parameter arguments, see par
.
plot(x, y, ...)
x |
the coordinates of points in the plot. Alternatively, a
single plotting structure, function or any R object with a
plot method can be provided. |
y |
the y coordinates of points in the plot, optional
if x is an appropriate structure. |

Arguments to be passed to methods, such as graphical
parameters (see par ).
Many methods will accept the following arguments:
type
type s give a warning or an error; using, e.g.,
type = "punkte" being equivalent to type = "p" for S
compatibility.
main title .sub title .xlab title .ylab title .asp plot.window . |
For simple scatter plots, plot.default
will be used.
However, there are plot
methods for many R objects,
including function
s, data.frame
s,
density
objects, etc. Use methods(plot)
and
the documentation for these.
The two step types differ in their x-y preference: Going from
(x1,y1) to (x2,y2) with x1 < x2, type = "s"
moves first horizontal, then vertical, whereas type = "S"
moves
the other way around.

plot(cars) lines(lowess(cars)) plot(sin, -pi, 2*pi) ## Discrete Distribution Plot: plot(table(rpois(100,5)), type = "h", col = "red", lwd=10, main="rpois(100,lambda=5)") ## Simple quantiles/ECDF, see ecdf() {library(stats)} for a better one: plot(x <- sort(rnorm(47)), type = "s", main = "plot(x, type = \"s\")") points(x, cex = .5, col = "dark red")
