[R] Plotting Hints - how to add minor tics on axes

You can use the axis function to add tick marks and labels at specified positions (including whatever origin you want to use). If you add shorter tick marks without labels, then they are minor ticks (usually you will suppress the default axes using axes=FALSE or xaxt/yaxt='n', then use the axis function to add in your own custom ticks and labels (call once for major ticks, a second time for minor).
Hope this helps,
