Hi All,

Currently my plot shows the y-axis in scientific notation (1e07 and so on).
I want to be able to display this in dollars such that it shows $10,000,000
(including the commas). How do I do this.

Also with the xlabel and ylabel. I've specified: 'title('Cash vs
Time',xlab='Period',ylab=''); Im hoping that this will also not display
anything on the y-axis. Instead it is actually overwriting the default
x-label and the default y-label remains the same.

Is there something I was supposed to do. I thought by specifying the 'xlab'
option in title it gets rid of the default one.
