All of which should suggest:

1. Before posting further, spend some time with an R tutorial or two.
"An Intro to R" ships with R; and links to some of the many excellent
web resources can be found here:


2. Search!  A web search of "plot step function in R"  would have
brought up stepfun() and other relevant links. rseek.org or the sos
package  -- or even the RSiteSearch() function -- are other ways to
find about R and R package functionality. See also the CRAN task view

Typically, answers to basic questions like the OP's can be found more
quickly and easily through such means; and with the added benefit of
providing examples and connections to related material. Of course, if
**after** consulting such resources questions still remain, asking
here is usually helpful.
