# Thanks: 袁超磊 <> from ROBERT I. KABACOFF, 2011, R in Action,
#function could not give two minor tick marks
#between each major tick mark on the y-axis.
## This seemed to fail but it really succeeded.
## minor.tick uses par('xaxp' or 'yaxp') and worked with respect
## to the plot( ) as can be seen if yaxt='n' is omitted
x <- c(1:10) 
y <- x 
z <- 10/x 

plot(x, y, type="b", 
     pch=21, col="red",

lines(x, z, type="b", pch=22, col="blue", lty=2)
