Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Set aspect ratio match data matrix or given aspect ratio The par("pin") graphics parameter is adjusted to meet the requested aspect ratio within a chosen tolerance.

parasp(dat, aspr = dim(dat)[1]/dim(dat)[2], tol = 0.01)

Arguments

dat

A matrix to be used as a template to define aspr

 parasp(aspr=sqrt(2))	# set to harmonic ratio
 xx <- matrix(ncol=4,nrow=5); parasp(xx)	# set to match row/col ration in xx
## The function is currently defined as
function(dat, aspr=dim(dat)[1]/dim(dat)[2], tol=0.01)
{	if (aspr<= 0) stop("parasp: aspr must be positive")
	pin<-par("pin")
	ar <- pin[1]/pin[2]
	if (abs(ar/aspr)>tol) {
		if (ar < aspr) 
			pin[2] <- pin[1]/aspr  else pin[1] <- pin[2]* aspr
		par(pin=pin)
	}
  }
