[R] graph question

I believe just setting log = "y" in your plot command should do this.

For example:

> plot(runif(100, 1, 100), runif(100, 1, 100), log = "xy")
gives me tick marks at 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100.  (YMMV because of the
random numbers.)

Hope this helps,

Matt Wiener

I would like to produce a graph which plots a log scale variable on the 
y-axis but have the tick marks on the y-axis  be the non log transformed 
values that are round like .5, 1, 2, 3, 4 etc. Has anyone done something 
like this in the past? How did you implement it in the code?
