Replacements of traditional graphics functions

These functions are intended to replace common low level traditional graphics functions, primarily for use in panel functions. The originals can not be used (at least not easily) because lattice panel functions need to use grid graphics. Low level drawing functions in grid can be used directly as well, and is often more flexible. These functions are provided for convenience and portability.

         font, fontfamily, fontface,
         col.line, alpha, fill,

These functions are meant to be grid replacements of the corresponding base R graphics functions, to allow existing Trellis code to be used with minimal modification. The functions panel.* are essentally identical to the l* versions, are recommended for use in new code (as opposed to ported code) as they have more readable names.

See the documentation of the base functions for usage. Not all arguments are always supported. All these correspond to the default methods only.


There is a new type="H" option wherever appropriate, which is similar to type="h", but with horizontal lines.
