[R] Plots from categorial data

Hello Hadley,
Thanks a lot for your help. I got the plot I want out of this module with a
slightly more complicated command.
But now, I have an additional problem:
In the given case, the "filtersetting" column contains letters, so R takes
the values as categories. But I have other filters, which only have numeric
categories like "0.125", "0.25", "1", and so on. But there is no real
"distance" between these values, so the data is still categorial. But if I
draw a plot from this data, the result is a plot with axis labels like 0.2,
0.4, 0.6, ...
How do I tell R to treat the numbers in the filtersetting column as
categories?
Thanks and regards,
Christoph

Perhaps this will do what you want:
library(ggplot2)
qplot(filter_setting, avg.hit, data=data, colour=ocrtool, geom="line")
find out more about ggplot2 at http://had.co.nz/ggplot2
