[Rd] hist (PR#2512)
Fri Jan 31 18:36:05 2003
hist() does not label bins: it is not a barplot. It labels an x axis,
from which you can read the boundaries of the bins, in this case [2,3],
(3,4], (4,5], (5,6]. That's what the help page says it does, so where is
the bug in R?

looks incorrect -- 3 in the bin labeled 2 on the left, but
1 each in the bins labeled 3,4,5 on the left.
