[R] plotting

Here is the approach that I would take.
Use a different plot for each day but line them all up like so:
x <- c(1, 2, 10, 12)
y <- c(100, -20, 50, 25)
day <- c(1,1,2,2)
my.df <- data.frame(x=x,y=y,day=day)
par(mfrow=c(1,2), oma=c(5,4,4,2)+0.1, mar=c(0,0,0,0))
tmp.yr <- range(my.df$y)
for (i in 1:2){
with(subset(my.df, day==i),
plot(x,y,type='l', xlab='', ylab='', axes=FALSE, ylim=tmp.yr)
)
axis(1, outer=TRUE)
if(i==1) axis(2, outer=TRUE)
box()
mtext( paste('Day',i), 1, line=3 )
}
You will probably want to play with the xlims so that there is the
appropriate amount of space between plots and so that each day
represents the same scale (in this example day 1 shows 1 hour spread and
day 2 shows 2 hours, probably want to keep that the same).
You could also replace the box() line with one final box('inner') after
the loop if you don't want the line(s) between days.
Hope this helps,
