Description

plot squared residuals in inches to match the y-dimension

Usage

1
resid.squares(x, y, y.hat, resid.plot = "square", ...)

Arguments

x

x values

y

observed y values

y.hat

predicted y values

resid.plot

If "square", then plot the squared residuals. If TRUE (or anything else), then plot straight lines for the residuals.

...

Other graphics arguments.

Details

The goal is to get real squares on the screen or paper. The trick is to play games with the aspect ratio. We find the number of inches that each vertical residual occupies. We then find the number of x-units that corresponds to, and plot a rectangle with height=height in the y-data units and with width=the number of x-units that we just calculated.
