rotating axis labels in R

In R, how do I make a (bar)plot's y axis labels parallel to the X axis instead of parallel to the Y axis?


Not sure if this is what you mean, but try setting las=1. Here's an example:

tN <- table(Ni <- stats::rpois(100, lambda=5))
r <- barplot(tN, col=rainbow(20), las=1)


That represents the style of axis labels. (0=parallel, 1=all horizontal, 2=all perpendicular to axis, 3=all vertical)
