perfect Romain,
box( bty = "l", lwd = 2 )
is the solution !
thank you all for your kind responses,
willem

Hi Willem ,

In that case, I would go with a vanilla `plot` call and then add `axis` and `box` low-level function calls:

```plot( 5:10, 5:10, axes = FALSE  )
axis( 1, lwd = 2, .. )
axis( 2, lwd = 2, .. )
```

box( bty = "l", lwd = 2 )

Cheers,

Romain
