Hi All,

I can get the barplot function to do many types of plots, stacked or otherwise. However, I cannot get it to do a *single* stacked bar. I've searched several books & listserv archives to no avail. I suspect I'm missing the obvious from the help file!

I can reach my goal in ggplot2, although the relative heights of the bar's pieces don't seem quite right (it does generate a warning):

y<-factor( c("Male","Male","Female") )
mydata <- data.frame(x,y)

#These are close to my goal:
qplot( x, y, fill=y, geom="bar", data=mydata)

# or

ggplot(mydata, aes(x=x, y=y, fill=y)) + geom_bar()

# But this places the bars beside each other rather than stack them.
barplot( table(mydata$y), beside=FALSE)
