Have a look at ?hist. It seems like you want this:

data  <- rnorm(100)
hist(data, xlim = c(0,6))

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more
than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to
say what the experiment died of.

Onderwerp: [R] another histogram question

Hi there,

I hope this question is not as stupid as the one before ...
I tried to shorten my histogram (because the distribution is quite
skewed and I
simply don't want to see the long tail but still use the histogram
plot). How
can I do something like this? (The example does not work but I don't
know why...)

data <- rnorm(100) # as example, of course this is not skewed...

h <- hist(data, plot=FALSE)
mh <- 5
hh <- list(h$breaks[0:(mh+1)],
names(hh) <- names(h)
