Re: [R] Change labels of x-axes in Plot of stl() function?

If you look through the output of:

stats:::plot.stl

you see right near the end that "time" is hard coded in the call to mtext.

However, we could temporarily redefine mtext so that it works as you wish and then redefine plot.stl so that it looks within the environment of our function to find mtext (rather than looking in the stats package):

plot.stl <- function(..., xlab = "time") {

	mtext <- function(text, ...) graphics::mtext(xlab, ...)
	plot.stl <- stats:::plot.stl
	environment(plot.stl) <- environment()
	plot.stl(...)

}

# test it
example(stl)
plot.stl(stmd, xlab = "X")
