# Example 1
x <- c(9.45, 8.78, 0.93, 0.47, 0.24, 0.12)
y <- c(10.72, 10.56, 10.35, 10.10, 9.13, 6.72)
z <- c(7.578, 7.456, 6.956, 6.712, 4.832, 3.345)
plot(x, y, col='blue', pch=16, xlab= 'x', ylab='y, z')
points(x, z, col='red', pch=17)
library(plotrix)
axis.break(1,2,style="slash")

#Break X axis

xgap <- ifelse(x > 8, x-6, x)
#Possibly you'd want to check if there are values between 2 and 8.

xlab <- ifelse(xat>2, xat+6, xat)
axis(1,at=xat, labels=xlab)
library(plotrix)
axis.break(1,2,style="slash")

library(plotrix)

gap.plot(x,y, gap=c(2,7.5), gap.axis="x", pch=16,
col="blue", ylim=range(c(y,z)),

abline(v=seq(1.99,2.09,.001), col="white")  # hiding vertical lines

# Break Y Axis

ygap <- ifelse(y > 8, y-6, y)
#Possibly you'd want to check if there are values between 2 and 8.
plot(ygap, x, col='blue', pch=16, xlab= 'x', ylab='y, z', yaxt="n")

axis.break(2,2,style="slash")
