Dear All,
Further to answers to sorting, can someone tell me how can I sort a list
that contains duplicates (name) but keeping the duplicates together when
sorting the values. 
e.g., a data frame with name (in duplicates), Mvalues(may be different for
the duplicates)
name	M
1234	8
1234	8.3
4321	9
4321	8.1
If I sort by M, it will be 1234, 4321, 1234, 4321 but I want to keep the
duplicates together, so that it will give me 1234, 1234, 4321, 4321. I also
would like to set a cut-off, so that anything below a certain values will
not be sorted. Any help will be appreciated.
On another subject, I have downloaded and installed R1.1 for NT, it seems to
run fine but when I source codes that I have written for R1.0.1 for printing
labels to my data points, instead of printing name as label, it printed some
number that I have no idea what it represents, it is not the row number or
anything else. The code I used is 
plot(x,y, main="", xlab="x", ylab="y", type="n", ylim=c(-4,4), xlim=c(7,16))
points(x[d1], y[d1], pch=1,col=c(1:256))
points(x[d2], y[d2], pch=1,col=c(1:256))
if (sum(up)!=0) {
text(x[up],y[up], col="black",labels=name[up], cex=0.2, adj=1)}
What is wrong? it ran fine in R1.0.1 and it is working fine in R1.1.0 but
just not taking this text command right. Any suggestion will be appreciated.
