(all positive Xs, all negative Ys) this will happen automatically as the
standard R plot plots only in the range where there is data, e.g.

Betreff: [R] Changing the position of the origin

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how I can make 0,0 start at the top left hand corner of a
graph, instead of the typical lower left hand corner? I've tried to plot
with axes=F and then putting on the axes later, but I want the points to
correspond to the axes.
