  I have a question making side by side boxplot. 
  My response is numeric and I want to make a side by
side boxplot of it accroding to a factor vector. So,
there are several boxplots on the same plot. Each
boxplot is with respect to one level for a factor. The
levels of
the factor are some characters. When I make the plot,
the boxplots are arranged according to the alphabetic
order of the levels. My question is that how I can
change the order the boxplots are arranged. For
   boxplot(time.vec~fac,xlab="Events",ylab="Time In

Then the boxplots are arranged in the order of
"a","b","c","d". But for some reason, I want it to be
"c","a","d","b". Any suggestion about this question?

thx a lot!
