Dear all,

How can I plot the data below with scatter plot
so that the next to the marker it contain the label for "species"

class true_hits false_hits species
big      2350        180   lion
big       375         20   dog
big       635         97   cow
big        78          4   horse
big       694         93   giraffe

I am stuck with the following construct:

dat <-read.delim("mydata_data.txt")
rl <- dat[dat$class%in%"big",]

plot(rl$true_hits,rl$false_hits, pch=pch_list[["big"]],
xlab="# True Hits", ylab="# False Hits",bg="red")
