Learn about how to rapidly iterate data applications, while reusing existing code and leveraging open source technologies, brought to you in partnership with Exaptive.

I’ve been asked how to do this sev­eral times, so I thought it might help to put an exam­ple online.

x <- 1:5
y1 <- rnorm(5)
y2 <- rnorm(5,20)
par(mar=c(5,4,4,5)+.1)
plot(x,y1,type="l",col="red")
par(new=TRUE)
plot(x, y2,,type="l",col="blue",xaxt="n",yaxt="n",xlab="",ylab="")
axis(4)
mtext("y2",side=4,line=3)
legend("topleft",col=c("red","blue"),lty=1,legend=c("y1","y2"))
