Dear List,

I have a two-part question related to bpplot(), a box-percentile plot function in the Hmisc package.

Take the example given in the Help for bpplot(), for instance.

(1) How does one set but not draw the y-axis? What I did was, bpplot(... , yaxt="n"), but that apparently does not work (though it works for boxplot()).

(2) How does one display the mean value of each variable inside each respective box-percentile box? The following is what I did but to no avail:

> bpplot(x1, x2, x3)
> points(1:1, mean(x1), pch = "1")
> points(1:1, mean(x2), pch = "2")
> points(1:1, mean(x3), pch = "3")

Your help is much appreciated.
