I have two question that rose from trying to tacle the same problem in two
What I want to do is to plot axes (only values or labels, no tick marks) in
such a way that 'cex' can be very small, text can be perpendicular to the
axis (as in axis(las=2) ) and the text is stil at the right position.
Let me demonstrate with a small example:
The text on the axis should be at the same points as tick marks, but it is
I tried to bypas the problem by using function 'text', which puts the text
at the correct positions, however, it has another problem. I would like to
rotate the text, but if I use 'str=90' (to rotate the text for 90 degrees),
I get a warning massage:
parameter "str" couldn't be set in high-level plot() function
This suprises me, since if I read the help correctly ('?par'), then this
should not happen.
So if anyone can either hepl me to rotate the text in 'text' or to correctly
plot the text in 'axis', I would be very grateful.
