This simple function was written to superimpose error bars on a scatter
plot but can be also used with simple barplots. See second example.
"superpose.eb" <- function (x, y, ebl, ebu = ebl, lh = 0.01, ...)
{
#function to add error bars to an existing scatterplot
#written by Anne York, May 2002
#+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#ebu is the length of the upper error bar; assumed to be a vector with same
# length of x and y
#ebl is the length of the lower error bar; assumed to be a vector with same
# length of x and y
#2*lh is a the length of the tick at the end of the error bar
#it is assumed that the limits of the axes on the existing plot are
#sufficiently large to accomodate the error bars.
segments(x, y + ebu, x, y - ebl, ...)
segments(x - lh , y + ebu, x + lh , y + ebu,
...)
segments(x - lh, y - ebl, x + lh , y - ebl, ...)
}
#Examples:
my.ebl <- 2*abs(rnorm(10))
plot(1:10,1:10,ylim = c((0-max(ebl)),10+max(ebl)))
superpose.eb(1:10,1:10,ebl=my.ebl, lh = 0.05)
#Also works with a simple barplot:
dum <- barplot(1:10,ylim=c(0,12))
my.ebu <- abs(rnorm(10))
superpose.eb(dum[,1],1:10,ebl = 0, ebu=my.ebu, lh = 0.1, lwd = 3, col
="red")
points(dum[,1],1:10,pch=16, col = "red") # covers up the lower tick mark

Hello. I know that one can add standard errors to a bar plot by repeated
use of the lines() function, but this can be long when there are many
bars. I wonder if there is not already some other function that does this
automatically?
