histbackback | R Documentation |
Takes two vectors or a list with x
and y
components, and produces
back to back histograms of the two datasets.
histbackback(x, y, brks=NULL, xlab=NULL, axes=TRUE, probability=FALSE,
xlim=NULL, ylab='', ...)
x,y |
either two vectors or a list given as |
brks |
vector of the desired breakpoints for the histograms. |
xlab |
a vector of two character strings naming the two datasets. |
axes |
logical flag stating whether or not to label the axes. |
probability |
logical flag: if |
xlim |
x-axis limits. First value must be negative, as the left histogram is
placed at negative x-values. Second value must be positive, for the
right histogram. To make the limits symmetric, use e.g. |
ylab |
label for y-axis. Default is no label. |
... |
additional graphics parameters may be given. |
a list is returned invisibly with the following components:
left |
the counts for the dataset plotted on the left. |
right |
the counts for the dataset plotted on the right. |
breaks |
the breakpoints used. |
a plot is produced on the current graphics device.
