Actually, I'm producing the box plot numbers in boxplot() and then drawing the
plot with bxp. The help says graphical parameters can be entered as a list
(pars) or the regular way (...). When I just put in ylim=c(somenumber,
anothernumber) in bxp() the y axis is unchanged. From looking at the source
code, it looks like it should work, but....
I don't know how to use pars. I tried pars=, pars(), but those gave me error
