minor.tick: Minor Tick Marks

Description Usage Arguments Side Effects Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Adds minor tick marks to an existing plot. All minor tick marks that will fit on the axes will be drawn.

Usage

1
minor.tick(nx=2, ny=2, tick.ratio=0.5, x.args = list(), y.args = list())

Arguments

nx

number of intervals in which to divide the area between major tick marks on the X-axis. Set to 1 to suppress minor tick marks.

ny

same as nx but for the Y-axis.

tick.ratio

ratio of lengths of minor tick marks to major tick marks. The length of major tick marks is retrieved from par("tck").

x.args

additionl arguments (e.g. post, lwd) used by axis() function when rendering the X-axis.

y.args

same as x.args but for Y-axis.

Side Effects
