Dear tokas,

How about:

x <- seq(0.01, 10, length = 20)

xx <- x[7]

x[7] <- NA

plot(c(0, 10), c(-20, 20), type = "n", xlab = "x",

ylab = expression(2 * alpha * log(x))) for(i in 1:4){

lines(x, 2 * i * log(x), lty = 1)

text(xx, 2 * i * log(xx), i)

}

I hope this helps,

John

**> Dear R users,

**> x <- seq(0.01, 10, length = 20)

**> plot(c(0, 10), c(-20, 20), type = "n", xlab = "x",

**> pch. <- rep(NA, length(x))
**> for(i in 1:4){
**> pch.[7] <- as.character(i)
**> lines(x, 2 * i * log(x), type = "b", pch = pch., lty = 1) }

**> where all the line segments are connected, except from the

**> I'd like to produce a line plot where the label appears at
