R normally opens a screen device automatically with default parameters, but a user can open a plotting device explicitly, and set it up exactly as required. The availability of these depends on the platform on which you are working. ) to open a ﬁle for PNG bitmap output. You will need to read the help pages for each of these functions to ﬁnd out the exact details of the available parameters. They control things like the size of the plot, background colors, and so on. ) function. This function controls a very large number of parameters; we will just highlight a few here.

N. When the groups are of different sizes, some scheme must be used to artiﬁcially match them. R reduces the size of the larger group to the size of the smaller one by keeping the minimum and maximum values, and choosing equally spaced quantiles between. For example, if there were ﬁve X values but twenty Y values, then the X values would be plotted against the minimum, lower quartile, median, upper quartile and maximum of the Y values. When plotting a single sample against a reference distribution, theoretical quantiles are used for one coordinate.
