[R] rotate bar labels in barplot()

The las argument will allow rotation of 90 degrees:

barplot(1:10, names=letters[1:10], las=0)
barplot(1:10, names=letters[1:10], las=1)
barplot(1:10, names=letters[1:10], las=2)
barplot(1:10, names=letters[1:10], las=3)

If you want to do other rotation angles then it will be more complicated (but not much).
