Plot a Venn Diagram

This function produces Venn diagrams for up to 5 datasets.

Keywords
hplot
Usage
PlotVenn(x, col = "transparent", plotit = TRUE, labels = NULL)
Arguments
x

the list with the sets to be analysed. Those can be factors or something coercable to a factor.

col

the colors for the sets on the plot.

plotit

logical. Should a plot be produced or just the results be calculated.

labels

special labels for the plot. By default the names of the list x will be used. If those are missing, the LETTERS A..E will be chosen. Set this argument to NA, if no labels at all should be plotted.

Details

The function calculates the necessary frequencies and plots the venn diagram.

Value

a list with 2 elements, the first contains a table with the observed frequencies in the given sets. The second returns a data.frame with the xy coordinates for the labels in the venn diagram, the specific combination of factors and the frequency in that intersection area. The latter can be 0 as well.
