[R] controlling the labels width of a barplot

Dear all,

I am trying the barplot command but some of the labels are disappearing as there is not enough place on the graph to put them all.

Here is an example of code that doesn't show all the labels:

barplot(sort(runif(9,0,0.2),decreasing=TRUE),xlim=c(0,20),width=2,names.arg=c("first name","second name","third name","fourth name","fifth name","sixth name","seventh name","eigth name","nineth name"))

Does someone know a way to control the size of the font in the barplot function, or to give them an inclination angle?

Many thanks,
