Different Plot Types

You can change the type of plot that gets drawn by using the type argument.

Here’s a list of all the different types that you can use.

ValueDescription
“p”Points
“l”Lines
“b”Both points and lines
“c”The lines part alone of “b”
“o”Both points and lines “overplotted”
“h”Histogram like (or high‐density) vertical lines
“s”Step plot (horizontal first)
“S”Step plot (vertical first)
“n”No plotting

For using the above arguments, the syntax for the code is given below:

Example

> plot(cars, type="l", main='type="l"')

The code written above will make a plot with only the points and therefore can be altered by changing the type (type=””).
