[R-SIG-Mac] stupid question on abline

Hi Steven,
Try
abline(a = -1905/2, b = 0.5)
R is "drawing" abline(a = 0, b = 0.5) but it is entirely off the screen as the x limits are 1900 to 1910.
It appears that abline only works for b = 0 as those were your only attempts that yielded
a line within the plot frame.

Subject: [R-SIG-Mac] stupid question on abline
I must be missing something very obvious
data <-ts(rnorm(120,0,1),start=1900,frequency=12)
plot(data)
abline(a=0,b=1)
# draws nothing
abline(a=0,b=0) #works
abline(a=1,b=0) #works
abline(a=0,b=.5) # doesnt work
abline will only draw if b=0
