Re: [R] how to write symbol (nabla) in R graph

Dear all,

I still need help (I am a newbie to R).

I looked on the plotmath help and could not find how Unicode can be used. And I am in a Windows platform which I don't know if it is relevant. Can anyone help? Here is a simple example

plot(1:10,1:10)

can anyone provide the code to insert a "nabla" anywhere on it?

thanks

I have not tested it, but according to

http://www.gnu.org/software/plotutils/manual/html_chapter/plotutils_10.html

nabla is Unicode [0321]

Check documentation on plothmath how to use it.

Note: the documents cited in plotmath are huge, and it would be nice to have something like the gnu-reference I google for a short list.
