milton: that was totally your solution. i just changed it for what
hippie dream wanted. hippie dream: you can do ?text to get a better
explanation but

the basic idea is that the first two parameters in text specify the
coordinates at which you put the text and the third param is the text.
so, y

is there twice because in the first case, y acts as a coordinate and
in the second case, y acts as a label.

Thanks Mark Leeds!

Just putting something more on the code:

x<-runif(20)

y<-rnorm(20)

code.level<-sample(1:15,20, replace=T)

df<-data.frame(cbind(x,y, code.level))

plot(y~x, data=df, type="n")

text(df$x, df$y, df$code.level)

Peace,

text(df$x, df$y, df$y)

Thanks Milton,

I am finding this a little hard to explain. The code you gave me
produced

all 0.0 points whereas what I am looking for are the points to
correspond to

a specific column. I'll be explicit. I am graphing the location of 15
objects numbered 1 to 15.

plot(Length ~ Width, data=infiltration1, col="blue", xlab = "Width
(cm)",

ylab = "Length (m)", xlim=c(0,200), ylim=c(0,30))

Now I would like the points on this graph, rather than dots to be
numbers

corresponding to the object it represents. Is there any way to "access"
the

object number from my data to use as in lieu of points?

Thanks again.

Hi Hippien Dream

If I understood, the code below may help you.

x<-runif(20)

y<-rnorm(20)

df<-data.frame(cbind(x,y))

par(mfrow=c(1,2))

plot(y~x, data=df)

plot(y~x, data=df, type="n")

text(df$x, df$y, "o.o")

I am trying to produce a simple plot where the points in the plot are
actually integers from my data. That is, I am making a length/width plot
and

I would like the points, rather dots or triangles, appear as different
numbers corresponding to a column in my data. I have tried using this:

...,pch="column title"

but this merely returns the first letter of the column title, B. Is
there

any way to do this?

I am using R 2.7.1 and Ubuntu 8.04. Thanks.
