[R] divided scatter plots

Does the following code do something like what you want (but with the
built in data):

> plot(as.integer(state.region), state.x77[,'Murder'],
+ xaxt='n', xlim=c(0,5), col=as.integer(state.region))
> axis(1, at=1:4, labels=levels(state.region))
> oo <- order(order( as.integer(state.region), state.x77[,'Murder'] ))
> tmp.p <- rep( c(2,4), length=50 )[oo]
> text(as.integer(state.region), state.x77[,'Murder'], state.name,
+ col=as.integer(state.region))

If that is not what you want, then maybe you could give us some more
detail so we can better understand.

Hope this helps,
