[Q] Plotting non-continuous function

Suppose I have defined:

f[x_] := Which [x<=5,2,True,10]

If I then do Plot [f[t],{t,0,20}], the resulting graphic has a
vertical line at x=5. Is there anyway to avoid this? Ideally, I
would like the plot to have an open ball on the line y=2 and a closed
ball at y=10 to indicate that the function at x=5 has a limit from the
right but not from the left. Is it possible to do this? If the
answer is in a mathematica book, I would like a reference.
