For a frequency polygon, try to work around that piece of code, following Peter's notations :

dat <- rnorm(100)
h <- hist(dat,prob=TRUE, border="gray", col="gray90") diffBreaks <- diff(h$breaks)[1]
xx <- c(h$mids[1]-diffBreaks, h$mids, tail(h$mids,1)+diffBreaks) yy <- c(0, h$density, 0)
lines(xx, yy, lwd=2)

However, you might prefer (and that's probably wise) the kernel density estimator : density() that other people suggested.
