What is the use of type = "h" in base R for plotting a graph?

The type = "h" is a graphing argument in base R which is generally used inside a plot function. It helps to generate the vertical lines in the R environment instead of points. For example, if we want to plot values from 1 to 10 then type = "h" will plot the vertical lines starting from X-axis and the upper end of the lines will represent the actual value.
