Re: [R] Defining range of x and y axis in pairs()

Your panel function is missing a ... argument, hence the difference in the two cases.

As to why it works, as someone once said, it does `for some value of "work"'. Amongst the many places xlim gets passed is one that set the scale on each panel. Another place it gets sent is to your panel function.
