graphics bug: type="l" (PR#120)
Tue, 16 Feb 1999 21:33:52 +0100
The following commands illustrate a problem with graphing relatively large
data sets using the "line" option to plot:
temp <- runif(200000) # or whatever other numbers you like;
# same thing happens with a sine wave
plot(1:200000, temp) # everything fine
plot(1:200000, temp, type="l") # data gets cut off
The number of points isn't crucial. The cutoff point appears to be about
65,000 points. (70,000 points demonstrates the cutoff; with 50,000 points
there's no cutoff.)
As far as I can tell, the problem only occurs when using the
option type="l". It's unaffected by color, line type, and line width.
