[R] y-label on right hand side of plot

From: joerg van den hoff <j.van_den_hoff_at_fz-rossendorf.de>

Is there a better way than:

par(mar=c(6,6,6,6))

plot(1:10,yaxt="n",ylab="")
axis(4)
text(12,5.5,'y-label',xpd=T,srt=90)


to get the y-ticks _and_ the y-label to the rhs of the plot? I did not find anything in the 'par', 'plot', 'axis' and 'title' manpages to solve the problem. (the above is ugly, because one needs to hardcode the

   text position or needs to calculate it 'manually' from par('usr'). it would be much nicer, if there were a flag to 'title' controlling were the labels occur).

thanks
joerg
