Errr...I'm still not sure how plot(table) gives you read and green
points, but it sounds like the easiest thing to do would be to use the
points() function to come back in and put new green points over the
red ones. E.g.
plot(runif(5000), runif(5000))
points(c(0.5, 0.25), c(0.5, 0.75), col = 2, pch = 19, cex = 2)
Perhaps you can give us a hint of your data with
dput(head(table, 30))
Please give us that rather than copy and pasting the printed output of
table: it's easier (and more precise) for us to reproduce your data
since dput keeps the internal structure.
