Plot a Histogram
Creates a histogram on the current graphics device.
truehist(data, nbins = "Scott", h, x0 = -h/1000, breaks, prob = TRUE, xlim = range(breaks), ymax = max(est), col, xlab = deparse(substitute(data)), bty = "n", ...)
- numeric vector of data for histogram. Missing values (
NAs) are allowed and omitted.
- The suggested number of bins. Either a positive integer, or a character string
naming a rule:
"FD". (Case is ignored.)
- The bin width, a strictly positive number (takes precedence over
- Shift for the bins - the breaks are at
x0 + h * (..., -1, 0, 1, ...)
- The set of breakpoints to be used. (Usually omitted, takes precedence
- If true (the default) plot a true histogram. The vertical axis has a relative frequency density scale, so the product of the dimensions of any panel gives the relative frequency. Hence the total area under the histogram is 1 and it is directly c
- The limits for the x-axis.
- The upper limit for the y-axis.
- The colour number for the bar fill.
- label for the plot x-axis. By default, this will be the name of

This plots a true histogram, a density estimate of total area 1. If
breaks is specified, those breakpoints are used. Otherwise if
h is specified, a regular grid of bins is used with width
h. If neither
h is specified,
nbins is used to select a suitable
A histogram is plotted on the current device.
