I'd like to ask, how to adjust the space between symbol/line and text in a
legend. My legend() is build like that

  legend(xmax-netzdiff/11,                  # shouldn't matter here
         ifelse(ydiff>=0,                   #
	        ymin-6.5*(netzdiff/11),     #
	        ymax-netzdiff/11),          #
	 c("stehender Stamm","Windwurf",
	 pch=c( 1,-1, 5,20, 4),
	 lty=c(-1, 1,-1,-1,-1),
	 xjust=1, yjust=ifelse(ydiff>=0,-1,1),
	 y.intersp=0.8, cex=0.6)
and looks like http://www.gwdg.de/~ksueber/beispiel.jpg or

  |O        stehender Stamm |
  |--       Windwurf        |
  |#        Eklektor        |
and so, but it should look something like

  |  O   stehender Stamm |
  | ---  Windwurf        |
  |  #   Eklektor        |

and so on. Most important for me would be to reduce the space between
symbols and text. 

Thank you,
