Dear james,

jhcc> check out 'sprintf' for formating in a specific way.

This will not solve the problem.
I will have to specify the argument like labels=(...).
I would like to avoid it.

I wonder if there a key or option to make automatically appearing
labels be formatted in the mentioned way.
I haven't found it in the documentation.

jhcc>   I draw graphics with xyplot() function.
jhcc>   Labels on the y axis are appearing as follows: "1.5, 1, 0.5, 0"

jhcc>   I'd like to have them to be "1.5, 1.0, 0.5, 0.0", i.e. with fixed
jhcc>   number of digits after the dot (one in this case).

jhcc>   Is there any way to do this without implicit specifying labels?

Best regards
