# [R] two y-axis in xy-plot

It is nearly the same example I wrote about in http://www.mail-archive.com/r-help@stat.math.ethz.ch/msg54238.html. I'll print it out again:

In the first column I have numbers from 0 to 23 (hours of a day), the second
column contains the name of a weekday (Day as factor) and the third column
contains the number I am interested in. So as an example, the first five rows look like that:

Hour Day Freq

1     0  Mo    23

2     1  Mo    20

3     2  Mo    14

4     3  Mo    27

5     4  Mo    26

To read: On Monday between 0 and 1 o'clock 23 things happened.

Now I add a new parameter, so that the data looks somehow like that:

Hour Day Freq Freq2

1     0  Mo    23	  874

2     1  Mo    20   476

3     2  Mo    14	  201

4     3  Mo    27   912

5     4  Mo    26   172

Now I'd like to have a plot for every weekday containing the two frequencies as a line during the hours.

Is this possible with two y-axes?

The answer depends on the details of what you are doing, so please
provide us with a reproducible example.
