Looks like plots became of low quality in Mathematica 9?

How to make Mathematica to plot continuously? Logically current plot style is solid.

  • $\begingroup$ You can remove the gaps by adding Exclusions -> None so it will be a continuous stairs like plot $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The CDF of a binomial distribution is not a continuous function. $\endgroup$

Interestingly, your plot rendered fine as per my comments, and more interestingly, as soon as I added an Export after the fact, the plot looked like yours. This persisted even after removing the export and re-plotting: I had to quit the kernel, restart, and re-plot. Might be a weird bug, I will be investigating further.

In any case, DiscretePlot is really better suited to the CDF of a discrete distribution:

DiscretePlot[CDF[BinomialDistribution[1001, 1/2], x], {x, 0, 1001}, 
             PlotRange -> {0, 1}, Filling -> None, Joined -> True]
