You were told before this isn't a Mac question so please don't cc R-SIG-Mac.
I'm not sure what this bit of your reply means "My question is to find
any command to plot the data I got from the field;" but your reply
later suggests that your problem is that you are overriding previous
plots on a given device. By default, plot() does this -- if you want
to add elements, you need to use points() or lines() (or some function
that calls those, like abline() as I demonstrated)
E.g.,
# Removes first plot
plot(1:20)
plot(0:19, col = 2)
# Adds to plot
plot(1:20)
points(0:19, col = 2)
