I combine your answers and post the code here again, if later somebody need it.

Actually, what I want is:
> x1

 1 2 10
> x2

 -3 5 -8
> barplot(x1,col="white",border="red")
So that, the two plots even share the same x-axis.

But, It comes another question: >
barplot(x2,col="white",border="green",add=T), because there are 2 numbers are negative, some part of the bar is missing. Is there any automatic function to make the axes fit very well for both bars?
