Hi List,

Just wondering where the documentation exists for the statistics which 
makeup the bwplot.

I'm guessing that if R is like similar products that the graph is 
constructed as

The median is the filled circle. The box surrounding the filled circle 
depicts the 25th and 75th quartile. The range of values is given by the 
dotted lines (“whiskers”) outside of each box, and possible outliers 
are given by the open circles outside the box.

Is this close?
