I would like to create a histogram-like plot. I already have the frequency data, so I don't need to use the Histogram function itself. What is the easiest way to do this? I tried using the BarChart function, but couldn't figure out how to position the bars precisely on the X axis (for example, have 5 bars in the range (0,1), similar to what Histogram[RandomReal[1, 100], 5] produces). Is there an easy way to achieve this, or will it be necessary to draw the bars manually? P.S. It's not enough to have the correct label for each bar: It is necessary to position the bars precisely in Mathematica's coordinate system because another plot will be drawn on top of this one.
