#' Translating between qplot and lattice
#'
#' The major difference between lattice and ggplot2 is that lattice uses a formula based
#' interface. ggplot2 does not because the formula does not generalise well
#' to more complicated situations.

#' @examples
#' \dontrun{
#' xyplot(rating ~ year, data=movies)
#' qplot(year, rating, data=movies)
#'
#' xyplot(rating ~ year | Comedy + Action, data = movies)
#' qplot(year, rating, data = movies, facets = ~ Comedy + Action)
#' # Or maybe
#' qplot(year, rating, data = movies, facets = Comedy ~ Action)
#'
#' # While lattice has many different functions to produce different types of
#' # graphics (which are all basically equivalent to setting the panel argument),
#' # ggplot2 has qplot().

#' stripplot(~ rating, data = movies, jitter.data = TRUE)
#' qplot(rating, 1, data = movies, geom = "jitter")

#' histogram(~ rating, data = movies)

#' bwplot(Comedy ~ rating ,data = movies)

#' xyplot(wt ~ mpg, mtcars, type = c("p","r"))
#' qplot(mpg, wt, data = mtcars, geom = c("point","smooth"), method = "lm")

#' # The capabilities for scale manipulations are similar in both ggplot2 and
#' # lattice, although the syntax is a little different.

#' xyplot(wt ~ mpg | cyl, mtcars, scales = list(log = 2))

#' xyplot(wt ~ mpg, mtcars, xlim = c(20,30))
#' # Works like lattice, except you can't specify a different limit
#' # for each panel/facet
#' qplot(mpg, wt, data = mtcars, xlim = c(20,30))
#'
#' # Both lattice and ggplot2 have similar options for controlling labels on the plot.
