  grpvarname = NULL, ...)

## S3 method for class 'formula'
stemPlot(formula, data = parent.frame(), subset, ...)

Arguments

x

a numeric variable.

...

further arguments to be passed to or from methods.

grpvar

a factor variable. A stem plot of x will be created for each level of the factor variable.

varname

name of the numeric variable. This is for printing the output only. Change if you want to print out a name different from the actual variable name.

grpvarname

name of the factor variable. This is for printing the output only. Change if you want to print out a name different from the actual variable name.

formula

a formula of the form x ~ grpvar where x is numeric and grpvar is a factor variable.

data

a data frame with the variables in the formula.
