Re: [R] Plotting 27 line plots in one page

This works :

 # simulate some data
 mylist <- list(NULL)
 for(i in 1:27) mylist[[i]] <- rnorm( rpois( 1, lambda=20 ) )

 # execute

 par( mfrow=c(9,3) )
 par(mar = c(1,1,1,1), oma = c(1,1,1,1))
 for(i in 1:27) plot( mylist[[i]] )

Also if you just want to plot the distribution values etc, then you can also try different possibilities such as  

 boxplot( mylist )
