gamma

the gamma correction.

alpha

the opacity, is specified.

rev

logical indicating whether the ordering of the colors should be reversed.

Details

The function gray.colors chooses a series of n gamma-corrected gray levels between start and end: seq(start^gamma, end^gamma, length = n)^(1/gamma). The returned palette contains the corresponding gray colors. This palette is used in barplot.default.
