Plotting method for objects inheriting from class "ts"
.
## S3 method for class 'ts' plot(x, y = NULL, plot.type = c("multiple", "single"), xy.labels, xy.lines, panel = lines, nc, yax.flip = FALSE, mar.multi = c(0, 5.1, 0, if(yax.flip) 5.1 else 2.1), oma.multi = c(6, 0, 5, 0), axes = TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'ts' lines(x, ...)
x, y |
time series objects, usually inheriting from class |
plot.type |
for multivariate time series, should the series by plotted separately (with a common time axis) or on a single plot? Can be abbreviated. |
xy.labels |
logical, indicating if |
xy.lines |
logical, indicating if |
panel |
a |
nc |
the number of columns to use when |
yax.flip |
logical indicating if the y-axis (ticks and numbering)
should flip from side 2 (left) to 4 (right) from series to series
when |
mar.multi, oma.multi |
the (default) |
axes |
logical indicating if x- and y- axes should be drawn. |

additional graphical arguments, see |
If y
is missing, this function creates a time series
plot, for multivariate series of one of two kinds depending on
plot.type
.
If y
is present, both x
and y
must be univariate,
and a scatter plot y ~ x
will be drawn, enhanced by
using text
if xy.labels
is
TRUE
or character
, and lines
if
xy.lines
is TRUE
.
ts
for basic time series construction and access
functionality.
