Graphics and standard plots

The graphics package was originally developed based on the experience of the graphics environment in R. The approach implemented in this package is based on the principle of the pen-on-paper model, where the plot is drawn in the first function call and once content is added, it cannot be deleted or modified.

In general, the functions available in this package can be divided into high-level and low-level functions. High-level functions are functions capable of drawing the actual plot, while low-level functions are functions used to add content to a graph that was already created with a high-level function.
