Dear all, I ran the following command to add a title to a matplot the logic being that the help for matplot refers the reader to the help for plot. As you can see, matplot doesn't recognize the title argument. Any other ideas for a way to get a title added to the matplot? > matplot(pm(BucBlAfBatch,"31962_at"),type="l",xlab="Probe No.",ylab="PM Probe Intensity",(title(main="31962"))) Error in title(main = "31962") : plot.new has not been called yet Dennis Burian, Ph.D. Functional Genomics Group Civil Aerospace Medical Institute, AAM-610 6500 S.

But you can't do what you are attempting because the parser works from the inside out. In other words, the parser will first evaluate title(main="31962") and then evaluate the overall call to matplot() (which is why you can get away with function calls within other function calls). However, in your case, plot.new() hasn't been called yet when title() is evaluated so you get an error.
