```The following should work, note I made x.name a factor.

x <- data.frame(main.name="AAA",
x.name=factor(rep(c("Apply","Watermelon","Lemon","Banana",

"Grape","Pineapply","Cherry","Peach","Orange","Mango","Strawberry"),each=5))
,
y.name=(1:55))

plot(x\$x.name, x\$y.name, axes=FALSE)
axis(1, at=1:length(levels(x\$x.name)), lab=FALSE)
axis(2)
box()
text(1:length(levels(x\$x.name)), par('usr')[3]-par('cxy')[2]*.5,

Yes! You are right ! It is perpendicular to the axis.
Thank you very much!
Could I choose the angle ,such as 45 degree?

Best Regards!

Hi Ivy,

x <- data.frame(main.name="AAA",
x.name=rep(c("Apply","Watermelon","Lemon","Banana",

"Grape","Pineapply","Cherry","Peach","Orange","Mango","Strawberry"),each=5),
y.name=(1:55))
par(las=2);
plot(x\$x.name, x\$y.name)

Bobby
