OK i came up with this after i got few good sugegstions.
First my data.frame actually looks like that (Thanks for clarifications to
Prof. Brian Ripley)
V1 V2 V3 V4
1 jan 3 1 7
2 mar 2 4 2
3 may 1 3 2
4 jul 3 7 4
5 sep 5 2 3
6 nov 3 1 5
What i want: 1. On x axis i want the ticks with labels column V1 in that
order and not alpha order.
2. i want points to represent the data, not horizoltal bars as a box-plot
with only one value as it will plot if i use plot.data.frame
Note. In my table i already have the order i want, but if i wouldn't have it
prof. Ripley's sugegstion is very welcome.
What i've done in the end:
>plot (mydata$V3, xlab="month")
>axis (side=1, at=c(1:6), labels=c(1:6), ticks=TRUE, col.axis="white")
>month.label <- as.character(mydata[])
>axis(side=1, at=c(1:6), labels = month.label, ticks=TRUE)
This is not an elegant solution but i get the graph i wanted. If anybody has
a better solution certainly i would like to see it.
thanks you again for all your help,
