John,

Use ParametricPlot instead of Plot. Like this:

ParametricPlot[{Sin[x], x}, {x, 0, 2 \[Pi]}]

When using Plot to plot F[x] as a function of x, Mathematica automatically =
assigns the independent variable x to the horizontal axis and the dependent=
 variable F[x] to the horizontal.  I often want to switch this around so th=
at the independent variable runs on the vertical axis and the dependent on =
the horizontal.  I feel sure there ought to be a simple way to tell Plot to=
 make this change but I have never found it and instead have resorted to co=
nvoluted approaches.  Can anyone tell me what the simple trick is, if it ex=
ists?
Thanks
