# [R] Creating a simple line graph

```Hi

Do not use cbind as it results in matrix and it can have only data of one
type, in your case character. Use

MeanEst2000.Sz=data.frame(Sz,Pred)

instead. And you probably could go step further to put everything into one
data frame

DF <- data.frame(Sz,Pred, Obs)
then

with(DF, plot(Pred, Obs, axes=F))
axis(2)
axis(1, at=DF\$Pred, DF\$Sz)
box()

Regards
Petr
