I'd like to iterate my earlier request (#7737) to change the documentation for bxp().

The argument outpch=" " needs to be replaced with outpch=NA in two places.

I actually wrote this part of the documentation myself at one point, but have now realized that pch=NA and pch=" " are not the same:

   x <- split(rlnorm(26e4), letters)
<a href="http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/devel/05/03/0175.html#1873qlink1"> ## NA generates small file

   postscript("na.ps"); boxplot(x,outpch=NA); dev.off()
<a href="http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/devel/05/03/0175.html#1873qlink2"> ## Space generates large file

   postscript("space.ps"); boxplot(x,outpch=" "); dev.off()

Thank you,


R 2.1.1-patched on WinXP
