[R] Can R make an usual dotplot

R can't do anything.

The question is whether you can do it with R.  R puts you in the driver seat and if necessary gives you the mechanic's tookkit so that you can tinker underneath the bonnet if need be.

If the function you like isn't quite there, have a look at the code and adjust it.  It's unlikely you will really need to do this if the code has been properly written, but the option is always there, and you could learn a great deal from the experience.

Alternatively if you really want minitab, well, as they say, you know where to find it.

Subject: [R] Can R make an usual dotplot

Dear R experts,

Can R make an usual dotplot just like Minitab and other softwares?

I have the following data, and can use dotchart to graph a dotplot:

y=c(2.873438152e-01,   -8.732895642e-01,  
4.579001889e-01,   1.047395204e+00,  
 8.491182299e-02 , -1.938007105e+00,  
-1.273708343e+00,   9.848010588e-05,  
7.238490734e-01,  -1.490552717e+00)

dotchart(y, xlab="10 observations from N(0,1)", xlim=c(-2, 4), pch=19)

But I don't want the dots on different level of y-axis since y-axis has no
meaning here. 
I also tried to load the package 'UsingR'
These two functions can plot the graphs I need but I cannot label the
x-axis, choose the type of the dot, limit the x-axis, etc. these features
don't work in DOTplot.

Is there a way I can get a dotplot in R which is look like the plot graphed
by DOTplot but has the features other plots can have in R?

Many many thanks!
