[R] horizontal high-density lines?

Hi all,

two solutions for horizontal high-density lines were suggested:

Use plot(..., type="h") and turn your head sideways. This turned out to be a pain in the neck ;-). But it sure works!

segments() sure does the trick,

for example

y <- runif(10)
x <- 1:10
segments(x0=0, y0=y, x1=x, y1=y, col="red")

thanks for the help!
