[R] Adjusting format of boxplot

Sorry about that. I got rid of the box another way and then switched to using pars=
without making sure it worked. This works: 

flies$group <- factor(flies$group, 5:1) # 1
levels(flies$group) <- paste0("Group ", 5:1) # 2

oldpar <- par(bty="n")
boxplot(long ~ group, 
        data = flies, 
        pars=list(las=1, ylim=c(10, 110), xaxt="n"), 
        horizontal = TRUE,
        col = "red")

axis(1, at=seq(10, 110, 20))

Added your code: 

flies <- read.table("example12_1.dat",header=TRUE,sep="\t") 

flies$group <- factor(flies$group,5:1) 

levels(flies$group) <- paste0("Group ",5:1) 

boxplot(long ~ group, 
data = flies, 
pars = list(las=1, ylim=c(10,110), xaxt="n", bty="n"), 
horizontal = TRUE, 
col = "red") 


Almost worked perfectly, except the frame around the plot remains, which is 
strange as you have bty="n".
