Date: Wed, 25 Mar 1998 11:24:28 -0600 (CST) From: Bill Simpson <wsimpson@uwinnipeg.ca> To: r-help <r-help@stat.math.ethz.ch> Subject: R-beta: mfg weirdness It seems there are problems with mfg, both the old version .61.2 and the snapshot .62. > x<-rnorm(100) > y<-rnorm(100) > y1<-x/y > x11() > par(mfcol=c(2,1)) > par(mai=c(.6,.6,.2,.2)) > plot(x,y,mfg=c(2,1,2,1)) I'm not sure if 2,1 is considered the top or the bottom position on the page, but whether you say mfg=c(2,1,2,1) or mfg=c(1,1,2,1), the first plot is always drawn at the top position. > plot(x,y,mfg=c(2,1,2,1)) Now the second plot is drawn at the bottom position. Again, the mfg argument has no effect. The second plot is always at the bottom > plot(x,y1,mfg=c(2,1,2,1)) Now the whole figure is cleared and a single plot appears at the top. Further plots alternate in position in this way, independent of mfg.
