dotplot {BrailleR}R Documentation

create a dotplot using stripchart


A method for creating dotplots. The functions call the stripchart command from the graphics package and assign the output to have the class dotplot.

## S3 method for class 'formula'
dotplot(x, ...)



a vector or formula, where the right hand side of the formula is a factor.


other graphical parameters including those passed to title.


This function was created as a result of being unable to assign all graphical parameters that are created when a formula is used in stripchart. Users not intending to use the VI method should use stripchart instead.


An object of class dotplot. This class is just a placeholder for the contents of the object used to create a boxplot which would otherwise not be stored in a usable format. The class is not intended for the user; it is a tool that enables the BrailleR package to deliver a readable text version of the plot.
