plot {base}  R Documentation 
Generic function for plotting of R objects. For more details about
the graphical parameter arguments, see par
.
plot(x, ...) plot(x, y, xlim=range(x), ylim=range(y), type="p", main, xlab, ylab, ...) plot(y ~ x, ...)
x 
the coordinates of points in the plot. Alternatively, a
single plotting structure 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. 
xlim, ylim 
the ranges to be encompassed by the x and y axes. 
type 
what type of plot should be drawn. Possible types are

main 
an overall title for the plot. 
xlab 
a title for the x axis. 
ylab 
a title for the y axis. 
... 
graphical parameters can be given as arguments to
plot . 
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.
